Crystal Veronie is Visiting Teaching Professor of English at the University of Southern Mississippi where she teaches English composition. Her research focuses on the crosscurrents between mid-nineteenth-century British literature, gender, and medicine at a critical juncture in the emergence of gynecology as a specialized branch of medicine. Her dissertation, “Mid-Nineteenth-Century British Women Writers and Resistive Embodiment,” engages with the methodologies of disability studies and health humanities to explore the poetry, fiction, journals and epistolary writing of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Sara Coleridge, Charlotte and Emily Brontë, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. She has an article on Sara Coleridge forthcoming in Essays in Romanticism. In addition to the literature of the British Nineteenth Century, her other interests include literary tourism and indigenous literature and activism. Her research on Menominee poet and activist Chrystos has been published in Studies in American Indian Literatures.
