Daniel Lane joined the faculty of the Department of English and Communications at Norwich University in 2000.
He earned a BA in English at Hamilton College, an MA in English at Binghamton University, and a PhD in American literature at the University of Delaware. His dissertation topic explored how nineteenth-century American shipwreck narratives helped to shape national cultural identity, a research interest that he works into literature of the sea courses here at Norwich. He particularly enjoys all things nautical, so he tries to get down to the sea as often as he can, with Lake Champlain providing a fine surrogate when his schedule keeps him here in Vermont. Prof. Lane’s other research and teaching interests include Vermont’s rural heritage and working landscape, travel writing, nineteenth-century American periodicals, American realism, and environmental literature.
