Anna Gibson is an assistant professor of English at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She teaches and researches nineteenth-century British literature, specializing in novels of the Victorian period. She is also the director of the "Amor" Learning Community. Her current project examines the capacities of novel form for representing and reshaping human psychology in the Victorian era.
In addition to her traditional research, Dr. Gibson is also director of the Digital Dickens Notes Project, which aims to digitize and explore Charles Dickens’s working notes for his novels (beginning with Our Mutual Friend) alongside their serial parts.
Dr. Gibson received her Ph.D. in English from Duke University, where she was a Mellon ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow and recipient of the 2013 Duke University Dean's Award for Excellence in Teaching.
