Jonathan Sadow is a specialist in eighteenth-century British literature who received his PhD in Comparative Literature 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, as well as courses on literary theory and postmodernism. He has published articles on genre, gender, puppets, and bagels. His chapter "The Epistemology of Genre" is part of the Pickering & Chatto 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 affiliated with the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, and his current research interests primarily involve eighteenth-century women writers like Eliza Fenwick, Charlotte Smith, and Eliza Haywood.
