Dan Walden researches the influence of the maritime world on the literature of Early and Antebellum America, focusing primarily on how the Atlantic coastline existed as a transitional space between the often conflicting cultural worlds of land and sea during the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries.

He has published in journals such as The Edgar Allan Poe Review and Atlantic Studies.
