Andrew M. Richmond received his B.A. from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, his M.Phil. from the University of Cambridge, and his Ph.D. from the Ohio State University. He has taught a wide array of undergraduate courses, including first and second year composition, British literature to 1800, introduction to Shakespeare, introduction to fiction, the Bible as literature, introduction to video game analysis, the rhetoric of science and technology, and literature in the U.S. experience. His research focuses on the ecological and cultural contexts of medieval British romances, and his recent publications on these subjects have appeared in the journal Neophilologus and the edited collection Dark Chaucer: An Assortment. While he has done work with animal studies in the past, his current book project concentrates on exploring representations of landscape in late medieval British romance.
