Jessica R. Valdez is an associate professor of English at the University of Hong Kong. Her first book, Plotting the News in the Victorian Novel, explores how nineteenth-century novels analysed the formal and social workings of news, and it is now available with Edinburgh University Press. She is currently working on a new book-length project that examines the intersecting imaginaries of the United States and China in nineteenth-century British literature. She earned her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University.
