Jordan Burke holds a doctorate in English from the University of Virginia, where he studied modern and contemporary literature and culture as a Jefferson Fellow. His current book project, “Profession of the Unseen,” follows a network of postcolonial scholar poets whose work between fields shapes contemporary approaches to form, culture, and the global departmentalization of literature. He received his B.A. in art history and English from the University of South Carolina and, after managing an art gallery in Washington D.C., received his M.A. in religion from Yale University. His writing is published or forthcoming in PMLA, Studies in Romanticism, and Religion and Literature, and it has appeared in anthologies on subjects ranging from Romanticism to modernism.
