Hi! I'm Amy Hildreth Chen.


In the five years since I earned my doctorate, I've moved twice, worked three different jobs, founded the Human(ities) Game Lab, and written two books. The first book, Miracle and Mystery: A Guide to the Wade Hall Collection, is forthcoming from NewSouth Books. The second book, Archival Bodies: The American Literary Collections Market since 1944, is due to the University of Massachusetts Press in June 2018. Plus, I've given workshops at the Iowa Writers' Workshop and Columbia University and even chatted on Iowa Public Radio. In my spare time, I tend to my elderly Shiba Inu, Mochi, and bike through the Iowa cornfields. Find me on ORCID, LinkedInGoogle ScholarHumanities CommonsSlideshare, or LibGuides.
