Trained as an Americanist and teaching a range of American twentieth and twenty-first-century courses on the undergraduate level, Lynn Keller’s research interests are generically focused: she studies poetry almost exclusively. Her early scholarship deals with the relationship between modernist and contemporary or postmodernist poetry, but since the publication of Keller’s first book she has focused on poetry written since the 1970s, especially women’s writing and feminist poetries in the U.S. While linguistically innovative work has been at the center of her recent research, Keller is committed to reading broadly in the field of contemporary poetry. Interested now in integrating her knowledge of contemporary poetry with my interests in environmentalism, Keller has shifted her research to the field of ecocriticism and contemporary experimental ecopoetics.
