The English department is delighted to welcome Professor Andrew H. Miller to Johns Hopkins. Professor Miller, an expert in Victorian studies, attempts, in his research, to show the ways that literary forms make valuable trouble for our thought about various issues, especially those pertaining to human psychology, moral philosophy and history.
Professor Miller comes to Hopkins from Indiana University, where for many years he edited the journal Victorian Studies. His first book, Novels Under Glass (1995), concerns the ways that commodification sent lines of stress through nineteenth-century British novels. The Burdens of Perfection (2008) considers the relation between moral perfectionism and the novel form.
Professor Miller is currently writing a book titled On Not Being Someone Else; it studies the representation of unled lives in literature and film.
