We here at BHL have some good news to start off 2013. Starting today, Sarah Skwire will be joining us as a permanent member of the crew!
Most of you probably saw the post Sarah wrote with Steve Horwitz the other day. But if you want a fuller introduction, you should take a look at some of her terrific work, like this piece for Cato Unbound on the relationship between literature and liberty, or this talk she gave on whether there’s anything for fans of the free market to like in the work of Charles Dickens. And definitely take a look at her Freeman column, and her blog.
As you can tell from her oeuvre, Sarah brings something a little different to this blog! Sarah’s PhD is in English from the University of Chicago, and her current work focuses on the relationship between literature and economics. She is the author of the college writing textbook, Writing with a Thesis, which is about to appear in its 12th edition, and she has published a range of academic articles on subjects from Shakespeare to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She is presently a full-time Fellow at Liberty Fund, Inc., a non-profit educational foundation.
Please join us in welcoming her to the blog!
