dc.description During the “Golden Age of Sailing,” from the late-1500s to the mid-1800s, those who lived and worked on the sea often were men without country. Though sailing on English, French, Spanish, Dutch and, later, American ships, the men who sailed the ocean developed unique language, music and traditions — a culture of the sea. And when those “sea men” came to shore, they quite often found themselves at odds with the larger terrestrial national cultures that sought to control them. In response, there rose a small intermediate space between land and sea — the coast — that offered sailors, privateers and pirates a place to “make a Hell of their own.”
dc.description At Baylor, Walden teaches classes on early American literature and culture. His research, which focuses on the intersection of maritime and terrestrial culture in America during the Golden Age of Sailing, has been published in Early American Literature, Atlantic Studies, Studies in American Fiction, The Nautilus and Southern Literary Journal, among others. His current book project, Between Two Worlds: The Coast in Early American Literature, examines the representation and significance of coastal environments in American literature from the 17th to the mid-19th centuries.
