Bio: Anne Lovering Rounds earned her B.A. in English and Classics from the University of Chicago and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Harvard University. Her interests include literary representations of cityscapes, especially New York City; the ways that poetry responds to trauma and loss; and the role and relevance of poetry and poetics in everyday life.

Professor Rounds’s work has appeared in Literary Imagination and Studies in the Novel. She has been a blogger for the summer poetry reading series at the Bryant Park Reading Room, and in 2010-11 was a co-curator for the poetry series Triptych Readings. She is a managing editor for Modernism/modernity, the journal of the Modernist Studies Association. Before joining the faculty at Hostos, she taught English courses at Fordham University’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies and at Metropolitan College of New York, and worked in the publishing industry as an editorial assistant at the New York offices of Cambridge University Press.
