Emily J. Rau is the assistant editor of the Willa Cather Archive, as well as an editorial assistant for Western American Literature. As a doctoral student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Emily's research focuses on American literature of the long nineteenth century, interweaving those texts with the work of contemporary ecocritics and spatial theorists. She uses this approach in her own work on Willa Cather, in which she examines how the railroad transforms conceptions of space and place in Cather's novels.
