About Barry Milligan

Concentration: Nineteenth-Century Literature, Romanticism, Literature and the History of Medicine, Poetry and Music

Barry Milligan joined the Wright State faculty in 1994 after earning his Ph.D. at Duke and serving as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell. His specialty is nineteenth-century British literature and culture, but he teaches courses throughout the English department's undergraduate and graduate curricula and has co-taught courses with Professor Carol Herringer of Wright State's History Department exploring the British experience of the Great War and its aftermath. Professor Milligan's publications include Pleasures and Pains: Opium and the Orient in Nineteenth-Century British Culture (University Press of Virginia, 1995), Romantic Generations: Essays in Honor of Robert F. Gleckner (with Ghislaine McDayter and Guinn Batten, Bucknell University Press, 2001), the Penguin Classics edition of Thomas De Quincey's Confessions of an English Opium-Eater and Other Writings (2003), and a number of articles on nineteenth-century British literature and culture.
