Biography

Jessica Teague specializes in 20th and 21st-century American Literature and is the author of Sound Recording Technology and American Literature, from the Phonograph to the Remix (Cambridge UP, 2021). The intersections between literature, sound, and technology are the focus of her research. Her teaching, like her scholarship, is interdisciplinary and engages with modernism, sound studies, jazz and popular music, theatre and performance, new media, and African American studies. Her work has been published or is forthcoming from venues such as American Quarterly, Sound Studies, SoundingOut!, and MELUS. Dr. Teague has also been the recipient of research fellowships from the ACLS and the Harrison Institute at the University of Virginia. She received her PhD in English from Columbia University (2013) and her BA from UCLA (2004).
