  1. I’m Crystal Calhoun, and I teach composition and literature for West Georgia Technical College. If there are some sections left, I would be happy to contribute with section introductions. I’ve been working on moving all of our English classes to OER for the last year. I’m very interested in all of the sections mentioned above, but I especially enjoy American Romanticism.

  2. Hi Crystal, thanks for your interest in the anthology and for your willingness to author a section introduction! Tim Robbins, the lead editor, will be the best person to confirm whether there are any sections left, so I’ll let him chime in here. :)
