Project: On the Commons: Poetic Afterlives of 18th-Century Property Concepts
MC Hyland is a PhD candidate in English Literature at New York University, and holds MFAs in Poetry and Book Arts from the University of Alabama. Her dissertation, On the Commons: Poetic Afterlives of 18th-Century Property Concepts reads a long history of poetic engagements with the boundary between public and private space. From her research, she produces scholarly and poetic texts, artists’ books, and public art projects. She is the founding editor of DoubleCross Press, a poetry micropress, as well as the author of several poetry chapbooks and the poetry collection Neveragainland (Lowbrow Press, 2010). Her work has been supported by grants from NYU, the University of Alabama, the Mellon Foundation, Poets House, the Wordsworth Summer Conference, the Minnesota State Arts Board, and Art Shanty Projects.
