Dr. Emily Robins Sharpe is assistant professor of global Anglophone and postcolonial literatures in the English Department at Keene State College. She completed her Master’s and PhD in Penn State’s Department of English, and her BA at the University of King’s College and Dalhousie University. Before coming to Keene State, she held an Editing Modernism in Canada postdoctoral fellowship in the University of Guelph’s School of English and Theatre Studies. Her research and teaching interests include global modernisms, postcolonial theory, cosmopolitanism, Jewish literatures, and the digital humanities. She is at work on a book manuscript examining global Anglophone responses to the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), which argues for the war as a formative juncture in transnational multicultural discourse. With Dr. Bart Vautour, she is co-director of “Canada and the Spanish Civil War: A Digital Research Environment,” a multi-phase project establishing a digital archive and print anthology of Canadian Spanish Civil War literature funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
