Abstract

Interview with Dr. Joe Lockard, associate professor of English at Arizona State University, where he has taught for 21 years. He's a specialist in nineteenth-century American Literature, particularly the literature of U.S. slavery and early African American literature. Joe talks about his groundbreaking research recovering the life and work of abolitionist Mattie Griffith, a young Kentucky poet who shared social circles with Sarah. Mattie's hatred of enslavement led her to leave Kentucky for the North, where she published a pseudo-slave narrative, Autobiography of a Female Slave. Interview conducted via Zoom by Dr. Elizabeth Renker from the Department of English at The Ohio State University.
