Susan Harlan



Susan Harlan is an assistant professor of English literature at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who specializes in Shakespeare and English Renaissance literature. She is obsessed with nostalgia in all its forms and thus spends much of her time collecting huge numbers of old things and seeking out retro motels and pancake houses. She also has a blog, Born on a Train, about a long-haul Amtrak trip that she undertook in full 1950s dress, including vintage luggage and – of course – hats.
