Daniel Block’s teaching and research interests include 18th- and 19th-century British literature, poetry and poetics, aesthetics, theories of emotion and affect, historiography, and rhetoric and composition. Block was recently recognized as a finalist for the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism/Romantic Circles Pedagogy Contest for "celebrating recent pedagogical innovation, inspiring creative new approaches, and creating an additional forum for conversations about Romantic pedagogy..." He published an article examining the role of poetry in Walter Scott's historical novel Waverley (1814).
