Noah Heringman teaches courses on the Romantic period and on poetry, aesthetic theory, and the cultural history of science. His publications include Romantic Rocks, Aesthetic Geology (Cornell University Press, 2004); an edited volume, Romantic Science: The Literary Forms of Natural History (SUNY Press, 2003); and essays in Representations, Studies in Romanticism, SEL: Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, and other journals, as well as numerous book chapters. Heringman's latest book, Sciences of Antiquity: Romantic Antiquarianism, Natural History, and Knowledge Work, was published in 2013 by Oxford University Press. Romantic Antiquarianism, a volume co-edited with Crystal B. Lake, appeared in June 2014, and another collaborative project, a digital edition of Vetusta Monumenta (co-edited with Lake, Anne Myers, and Matthew Reeve), is underway. His work has been supported by (among others) year-long fellowships from the Huntington Library and from the National Humanities Center, where he will spend 2014-2015 working on a new monograph project, Deep Time and the Prehistoric Turn.
