Wendy Griswold is studying literature and American cultural “regionalism,” which denotes distinctive, place-based cultural forms at any level. Her research, which extends from the nineteenth century to the present, supports the thesis that literature—not just works but authors, institutions, and readers—produces the understandings and practices associated with enduring cultures of place.
