Laura E. Helton is Assistant Professor of Print and Material Culture in the Departments of English and History at the University of Delaware. Her work on African American print culture, archival studies, and public humanities has appeared in PMLA, Social Text, and Southern Quarterly. Her current book project, “Collecting and Collectivity: Black Archival Publics, 1910-1950,” examines the emergence of African American archives and libraries to show how historical recuperation shaped forms of racial imagination in the early twentieth century.

I am a converted Londoner, originally from São Paulo. After working a few years in Sao Paulo as an architect and graphic designer, I came to the UK to pursue a master’s in Library Science. Having received my degree from City, University of London, I worked with cataloguing and digitisation of special items, such as pamphlets and posters, from the incredible archives of the Marx Memorial Library. I love all aspects of research work. My main interests at the moment: archive studies, library and archive history, digital archives, Spanish civil war. History, social history, and philosophy are passions that leave traces on everything I write and do. I am currently reading: a history of lighthouses, a global history of work, and a collection of British classic ghost stories
