Rebecca Kling is a PhD Candidate who works with transatlantic nineteenth century literature as well as prison studies and literacy theory. She is currently working on her dissertation, which is a transatlantic study of personhood and literacy in the mid-nineteenth century. In her dissertation, she interrogates the ways in which the late nineteenth century marked an originary moment for the formation of national discourses surrounding mass literacy, one that continues to warrant recognition today. Rebecca integrates these new insights on transatlantic contexts surrounding literacy with contemporary continuities, particularly in prison education and the school-to-prison pipeline. In addition to teaching writing and literature at University of California Davis, Rebecca also teaches at San Quentin Prison through the Priosn University Program.
