Kelsey Paige Mason

Kelsey Paige Mason is a PhD candidate at Ohio State University interested in nineteenth-century transatlantic literature, futurity, and utopianism. She analyses nineteenth-century primary texts from ideological and repressive spaces (such as prisons and plantations) as well as from utopian communities and draws correlations between these primary texts and utopian/dystopian fiction. She is interested in how published and unpublished narratives portray the utopian impulse towards the future, including questioning which populations are excluded from future speculation. Her recent publications include ‘Writing Revolution: Orwell’s Not-So-Plain Style in Animal Farm‘ and ‘A Lifetime Sowing the Blues: The Diary of Lucius Clark Smith, 1834–1915.’
