Noah Comet

Noah Comet, Library Board of Trustees Member

Mr. Comet is a professor of English at the United States Naval Academy, where he teaches a broad range of classes from first-year writing to honors capstones. His main area of research and publication (including more than two dozen scholarly essays and a 2013 book from Macmillan Press) is nineteenth-century British literature, particularly Romantic-period poets such as Keats and Byron. His service profile at the Academy is centered on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, values close to his heart. Previously he taught at the Ohio State University. 

Born in Cleveland, Mr. Comet attended Miami University for his B.A., then earned his masters from New York University and his doctorate from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a certified Maryland Master Naturalist and a published wildlife photographer, and is passionate about the outdoors. He has cultivated a secondary, non-academic writing career in that field, with his essays and photographs appearing in a range of mass media outlets. When not at work, he is likely to be hiking, biking or kayaking. 

An avid user and supporter of libraries, Mr. Comet often finds himself at Broadneck or Severna Park, browsing the stacks with his school-age son.
