Professional portrait of Sean Weidman
  • Visiting Assistant Professor
  • English

Dr. Sean Weidman is an energetic teacher-scholar who holds an M.A. and a Ph.D. in English from the Pennsylvania State University. He’s fond of autumn rain, strong coffee, and cozy sweaters.

Sean's scholarship orbits the early 20th century, around global Anglomodernisms, histories of anti/coloniality, and the politics of welcoming; and sometimes he also dabbles in the digital humanities. Some of his essays on literary modernism have appeared in English Literary History, Modernism/modernity, and Journal of Modern Literature, and you can find his digital modernist research in venues like Digital Humanities Quarterly and Digital Scholarship in the Humanities. His current book project tracks hospitality’s circulation and influence across the violent fractures of fin-de-siècle modernity—as political discourse, social form, anti/colonial history, and Anglomodernist literary culture.

At UWEC, Sean teaches in the Blugold Seminar for Critical Reading and Writing. He's also taught across the gamut of English studies, in modern/contemporary fiction and poetry, cultural studies, professional writing, and the digital humanities.
