About Per Henningsgaard
Per Henningsgaard received his Ph.D. from The University of Western Australia in Perth, Western Australia, and his B.A. from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York. Originally from a small town in northern Minnesota, Per graduated from Vassar in 2004 and promptly moved to New York City, where he worked as an Editorial Assistant for a multinational publishing house. Then, in 2005, he was awarded a Fulbright Grant on the basis of a proposal to study book publishing and regional literature in Western Australia. A planned 12-month stay in Australia was extended when he was offered a scholarship to enroll in a graduate program and continue his research under its auspices. Returning to the United States in 2009, he was an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he directed a student-staffed publishing house, Cornerstone Press.
