Erin Cheslow

Erin Cheslow is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of English at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She is interested in the ways in which oral forms emerged as a transnational aesthetic in the novels of the long nineteenth century. More specifically, her work examines sound and its transcription into text, as well as Indigenous written forms that enter into conversation with oral traditions and histories. When she is not doing this work, she spends time with her rabbit Sabrina and attempts to make the perfect cup of espresso.
