Ivy Linton Stabell joined the Iona College English Department faculty in the fall of 2013. Her dissertation focused on the construction of American identity in biographies published for children from the colonial era to the eve of the Civil War. An abridged chapter of her dissertation, an essay examining the way the first children’s biographies of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin figure the child’s role in the young nation’s authority structures, appears in Children’s Literature.

Her current research interests include twenty-first-century nonfiction for children and young adults and antebellum biographies of African American children.
