    Alice Martin is a PhD candidate in the English Department at Rutgers University, where she studies nineteenth century American women’s manuscript culture. She received her B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her M.A. in English from New York University. Her creative writing can be found in Reed MagazineThe Carolina Quarterly, Appalachian Heritage, Flash Fiction Magazine, and elsewhere. She's presented work at MLA, C-19, and Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies, amongst others. Her current dissertation project is on the ways in which women writers in nineteenth-century America turned toward manuscript-based writing—despite the rapid growth of print—to develop scales of limited publics that complicate the simple binary of public/private and conceptualize writing itself as a form social mediation.
