About J.R. Ladd

I'm John Ladd, a doctoral candidate in English literature at Washington University in St. Louis. I'm currently writing a dissertation on collaboration in 17th-century poetry and print. My other academic interests include the history of the book, network analysis, and digital humanities.

I live in St. Louis with my partner, Katie, and our cat, Cardigan. In my spare time I use Python to do things with words and a crochet hook to do things with yarn.
