Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director


Patricia Mooney-Melvin (University of Cincinnati, Ph.D., 1978) is Associate Professor of History and Graduate Program Director at Loyola University Chicago, where she teaches courses in public history, local history, Progressive Era history, and social welfare history. 

She received a Certificate of Excellence from the Illinois State Historical Society in Spring 1994 for Reading Your Neighborhood:  A History of East Rogers Park (Chicago: Loyola University, 1993). Mooney-Melvin was Graduate Faculty Member of the Year at Loyola in 2002.  As a member of the American Historical Association’s Committee on the Master’s Degree in History, she participated in the Wingspread Conference, Competencies and Credentials in the Training of History Professionals (2005).

Mooney-Melvin has been a leading voice in the promotion of public history for more than three decades. She served as President of the National Council on Public History (NCPH) from 1994-1995 and has held numerous positions in NCPH. She was the Curator of the Ohio Labor History Project at the Ohio Historical Society and Guest Curator for “Ohio Quilts and Quilters” at the Frick Art Galley of the College of Wooster as well as for “Behold Our Works Were Good” exhibition at The Old State House in Little Rock, AR. Mooney-Melvin served as the Acting Director for the UALR Archives and Special Collections Department at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She was a faculty member for Teaching Public History.  A Summer Humanities Institute funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities at Arizona State University in 1984.  Other public history projects of note include the “Guidebook to DoD-related World War II Sites and Museum,” Legacy Resource Management Program for the Department of Defense (principle investigator), “Agents of Change: the Jesuits and Mid-America,” Loyola University traveling exhibition (project director), and the Erie Neighborhood House Neighborhood History Project (facilitator).

More recently, Mooney-Melvin has focused her work in public history on curriculum development, women’s history, and community engagement. She is interested in reflective practice as public history’s signature pedagogy and has presented a draft of her work- in-progress in this area as a conference paper at a NCPH annual conference.   She is a founding member of the Women’s History Affinity Group of the American Association of State and Local History.  She was part of the scholar summit held by the Congressional Commission on a National Women’s History Museum and presented “Claiming and Engaging Space:  The National Women’s History Museum” on January 26, 2016.  She was a member of a working group that provided material for the section on the need for such a museum for the Commission as it prepared its report for Congress. In 2016 she participated in a NCPH PechaKucha session, “Re-interpreting Relevance:  Preservation, Herstory, and the Challenge to the National Narrative,” where she focused on the representation of women on Chicago’s memorial landscape.  Her interest in history and community engagement can be seen in a recent article in the Journal of Urban History (2014), “Engaging the Neighborhood: the East Rogers Park Neighborhood History Project and the Possibilities and Challenges of Community-Based Initiatives” and in her partnership with Elizabeth Fraterrigo as Co-PI for Race:  Are We So Different? Visitor Survey Evaluation Project (Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center 2014-2015 and South Carolina State Museum 2016).

Mooney-Melvin’s scholarship reflects her interests in urban and public history, the relationship of public space and public memory, and the history and evolution of city neighborhoods and settlements.

Senior Lecturer, Writing Across the Curriculum Coordinator

Writing Program Director, Senior Lecturer

Dr. Bradshaw's research focuses on the collective cultural memories that inform our understanding of powerful, public women. She argues that public discourse, at its most pervasive and superficial level, works to minimize their accomplishments and pathologize their ambitions.

This theme informs much of her work, from her book monograph Amy Lowell, Diva Poet, to a Camera Obscura article on the arrogation of Janis Joplin’s life and career in the film The Rose, to a piece on FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan in the LA Review of Books. She primarily studies this phenomenon in representations of American and British women poets, with recent articles focusing on iconic photographs of Edith Sitwell. Her current book project, Collectible Women: Literary Celebrity and the Rhetorics of Remembering, traces narratives attached to American poets Edna St. Vincent Millay, Gertrude Stein, Sara Teasdale, Elinor Wylie, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Marianne Moore back to the images, ephemera, and archival materials that often stand in for their work in a culture more interested in poetic reputations than in poetry itself.

In addition to her book project, she is working on both print and digital critical editions of Amy Lowell’s selected letters.

As Writing Across the Curriculum Coordinator at Loyola, Dr. Bradshaw works with faculty and graduate students across the University to develop upper-division writing courses.

Professor, Martin J. Svaglic Chair in Textual Studies

Dr. Marta Werner (headshot)

Dr. Werner's research and teaching focuses on the coordinates of the archive variously understood as a center for cultural power and repository of cultural memory and as a whispering gallery of the voices of cultural others who have all but disappeared.

Since her initial foray into the archives, she has been experimenting with different structures for representing Emily Dickinson’s works — first binding some of them into a codex book paradoxically titled Open Folios; then summoning others — or, rather, their digital surrogates — into an electronic archive fueled by millennial energies and called Radical Scatters; next collecting the poems Dickinson wrote on envelopes in The Gorgeous Nothings in order to disseminate them to addressees in a future she could not have imagined; and, most recently, editing the “Master” documents in a presentation that emphasizes their unfolding in time.

Her latest work with Dickinson is a new, collaborative project “‘These tested Our Horizon –’:De-archivizing Dickinson’s Birds on the Shores of the Anthropocene” which seeks to re-construct one thin bandwidth of Dickinson’s vanished soundscape by capturing — albeit incompletely — the calls and songs of the distant descendants of the birds of her world, while simultaneously encouraging us to measure and reflect upon the ecological distances, both actual and perceived, between Dickinson’s sound-world and our own.

Marta Werner is currently the editor-in-chief of Textual Cultures: Texts, Contexts, Interpretation, the official journal of the Society for Textual Scholarship. Textual Cultures is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal devoted to publishing essays on the praxis and theory of textual editing in all national traditions (texts) and historical periods.
