Crystal Veronie is Visiting Assistant 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. Her article, “Mother-Child Bonds and Resistive Embodiment in Sara Coleridge’s Writing” was recently published in Essays in Romanticism. In addition to British literature, her other interests include literary tourism and indigenous literature and activism. Her article on Menominee poet and activist Chrystos, “‘When my hands are empty / I will be full’: Visualizing Two-Spirit Bodies in Chrystos’s Not Vanishing” was published in Studies in American Indian Literatures in 2019.
