Mark Celeste is a Ph.D. candidate in English. He studies maritime fiction and oceanic networks during the British long nineteenth century. His dissertation examines how historical maritime genres (the logbook, the sea chantey, the shipwreck tale, etc.) make visible the exchanges between the literary marketplace and the political, social, and economic networks of an oceanic world. His work has appeared in The Gaskell Journal, Victorian Review, and The Chronicle of Higher Education.
