With research interests in translation studies, Romantic and Gothic literature, and the intersections between literature, philosophy, and science in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, C.C. Wharram is director of The Humanities Center at EIU. He recently edited a special volume on “Teaching Romantic Translation(s)” for Romantic Circle Pedagogies. His writing on Romanticism and/or translation has appeared in Germanic Review, Gothic Studies, Nineteenth Century Literature Criticism, and the collections Translations of Romantic Texts and Staël's Philosophy of the Passions. An essay on the intersections of humanism, translation, and the nonhuman is forthcoming in Educational Theory later this year. He was selected to participate in the NEH Summer Institute “The Centrality of the Translation to the Humanities: New Interdisciplinary Scholarship” (2013), and is currently finishing a book manuscript on the role of translation theory and practice in Romantic movements.
