Anton Povzner is a PhD student in English and a Gender Studies minor at the University of Notre Dame working in the Early American period. My primary current interest is community-building in the early settlements, especially with regard to Roger Williams. Most recently, I have been studying the topic of violence across Early American literature; prior to that, I focused on erosion of selfhood and nationalist formation in two novels by Charles Brockden Brown. I am also cultivating a side proficiency in digital humanities.
