Jon Mee is Professor of Eighteenth-century Studies at the University of York. Jon's research has been a shaping force in scholarship on the Romantic period in recent years.

His numerous publications in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century studies include Conversable Worlds Literature, Contention, and Community 1762-1830 (Oxford University Press, 2011), which was nominated for the Louis Gottschalk Prize (2012) of the American Society of the Eighteenth-Century Studies and the James Russell Lowell Prize (2012) of the MLA, and praised as 'impressive, exhaustive and dazzling', and Romanticism, Enthusiasm, and Regulation: Poetics and the Policing of Culture in the Romantic Period (Oxford University Press, 2003), welcomed in YWES as ‘without a doubt the most important contribution to general Romantic era studies this year'. Jon has taught at the Australian National University, Oxford University and Warwick.
