Jonathan Sadow is a specialist in eighteenth-century British literature who received his PhD from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. He teaches classes in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century literature that emphasize shifting conceptions of fiction, poetry, theater, gender, print culture, philosophy, and empire.  His recent article "The Epistemology of Genre" is part of the book Theory and Practice in Eighteenth Century Britain: Writing Between Philosophy and Literature, and explores the relationship between Lockean philosophy and eighteenth-century genre theory.  He is currently researching the novels of Eliza Haywood and the poetry of Charlotte Smith, and is interested in twentieth-century appropriations of the eighteenth-century novel. He has taught most recently at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
