Hosanna Krienke

Hosanna Krienke received her PhD in English from Northwestern University in 2016. Her research interests include nineteenth-century British literature, medical humanities and narrative ethics. Before moving to Wyoming, Dr. Krienke completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Oxford, working on the interdisciplinary research project “Diseases of Modern Life: Nineteenth-Century Perspectives.” Her first book, Convalescence in the Nineteenth-Century Novel: The Afterlife of Victorian Illness is coming out with Cambridge University Press in the summer of 2021. This book uncovers an untold history of post-acute holistic caregiving in Victorian Britain, a history that reorients how scholars talk about the rise of hospital medicine, the importance of lay caregivers, and the narrative form of the illness experience in the nineteenth century. As a teacher, Dr. K designs courses that facilitate interdisciplinary conversations in which art, literature, and history can inform contemporary social and political debates.
