Domesticity with a Difference: The Nonfiction of Catharine Beecher, Sarah J. Hale, Fanny Fern, and Margaret Fuller

By Nicole Tonkovich | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

For their support to me as I worked on this book, my most sincere thanks go to my colleagues in the Department of Literature at the University of California, San Diego. I cannot imagine a friendlier, more accommodating, and more comfortable intellectual environment in which to work. Roy Harvey Pearce gave this project his encouragement even before I joined the department and has continued to be a mentor and friend. Colleagues who were members of my writing group -- Beth Holmgren, Stephanie Jed, and Pasquale Verdicchio -- gave incisive critique and support. Other colleagues listened to ideas, offered their own, and read chapters and complete drafts, including Frances Foster, Kathryn Shevelow, Michael Davidson, and Susan Kirkpatrick. Rosaura Sánchez has been a marvelously supportive chair. My particular regard and thanks go to two of my first graduate students, Carolyn Haynes and Shawn Smith, for support, close readings, relevant sources, and editorial advice. More recently, Ed Cutler and Christina Accomando have joined me in stimulating tutorial discussions. My research assistants included Matt Worcester, Madeleine Jacot, Amy Hoffman, Ashley Hoffman, Jennifer Hoffman, and Fraser Pilkington.

The preparation of this manuscript has introduced me to many good friends in the scholarly community whose support I am delighted to acknowledge as well. Greg Clark and Michael Halloran helped me see how my Godey's research fit a larger rhetorical history; Catherine Hobbs became a valuable discussant about women's education; Barbara White offered archival sources on Sarah Josepha Hale; Sherbrooke Rogers generously directed me to Hale sources; audience members and respondents at American Studies Association, Modern Language Association, the Conference on College Composition and Communication, and the Stowe-Day Society helped me refine insights. Staff members and colleagues at the American Antiquarian Society's Summer Seminar in the History of the Book offered early and invaluable direction.

I have had substantial financial support toward the research involved in this book from the University of Utah and from the University of California, San Diego. This support has included fellowships, travel grants, and sabbatical leave time.
