Bob Levine has recently presented his work on Frederick Douglass at Rice University, the American Studies Association, and the Frederick Douglass Papers at Indiana University.  He is also the co-General Editor of the just published Norton Anthology of American Literature: Shorter Eighth Edition.  Bob is currently on leave as a Guggenheim Fellow as he works on his next book project, The Lives of Frederick Douglass, which aspires to offer a cultural history of how Douglass’s life has been conceived over the past 170 years.
