Arthur J. Russell teaches and writes about premodern literature and the rhetoric of the senses. His current projects investigate the sensory ecologies of late medieval reading habits, especially as they relate to the phenomenon of feeling, and their afterlives in contemporary art and culture. Recent work on haptic reading practices appears in postmedieval (2021).
Before coming to Hopkins, Russell was a SAGES Teaching Fellow at Case Western Reserve University.
