Paul Jaussen received his PhD in English, Theory, and Criticism from the University of Washington in 2010. His research focuses on 19th-20th century American literature, with a particular emphasis on poetry and poetics. His current book project, Writing in Real Time: Emergent Poetics from Whitman to the Digital, uses systems theory as a model for interpreting long poetry across historical periods, ranging from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass to contemporary works by Nathaniel Mackey and Rachel Blau DuPlessis. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in New Literary History, Contemporary Literature, Journal of Modern Literature and William Carlos Williams Review.
