David Zimmerman is associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the author of Panic! Markets, Crises, and Crowds in American Fiction (2006). His current book project, Infectious Designs: Conspiracy, Complicity, and American Literature, studies how American writers in the nineteenth century conceptualized collective action, agency, and responsibility. His talk focuses on the close connection antebellum American Protestants saw between Catholic imperial designs, sex between priests and penitents in the confessional, and print culture.
Co-Sponsored by the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America, the School of Library and Information Studies, and the Department of English.
