Profile Detail

Wesley Raabe

Associate Professor

My major current project, "Uncle Tom's Cabin: A Digital Critical Edition," will provide authoritative transcriptions, archival image facsimiles, and a textual apparatus for the surviving manuscript pages and for selected American publication forms of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin: the National Era version, publisher John P. Jewett's three initial print versions, and the 1879 Houghton Osgood New Edition. The edition will feature a textual introduction, an historical collation of the manuscript and the five printed texts, and a critically established reading text that promotes the study of authorial revision and other textual alterations. I am also the editor of the letters of Louisa Van Velsor Whitman, mother to the poet Walt Whitman.

My research interests the broader disciplines of bibliography, textual criticism, and digital humanities. My teaching interests include American literature (through the early twentieth century), scholarly editing, research methods, African American literature, sentimentalism (American and transatlantic), modernism, and regional writing.
