Before joining New York Tech, Amanda Golden held a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Georgia Institute of Technology and an N. E. H. Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Poetics at Emory University's Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry. She received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Washington and her B.A. in English from Colgate University.

Golden's monograph, Annotating Modernism: Marginalia and Pedagogy from Virginia Woolf to the Confessional Poets, was published by Routledge in 2020. She co-edited The Bloomsbury Handbook to Sylvia Plath (2022) with Anita Helle and Maeve O'Brien and is currently co-editing a new edition of Sylvia Plath's Collected Poems with Karen V. Kukil. This project has been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Golden previously edited a peer-reviewed cluster on Feminist Modernist Digital Humanities for the journal Feminist Modernist Studies. The issue, published in the journal's first year, was among those for which the journal received the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) Award for Best New Journal. Golden also edited the collection, This Business of Words: Reassessing Anne Sexton (UPF, 2016, paperback 2018), and has published in Modernism/modernity, Woolf Studies Annual, and The Ted Hughes Society Journal.

From 2021–2023, Golden will serve as Vice President of the International Virginia Woolf Society. She is a member of the Board of Editorial Advisors for the journal Textual Cultures and the Editorial Boards of the Orlando Project and Bloomsbury Academic's Modernist Archives Series. From 2015–2020, Golden served on the Modern Language Association's Executive Committee for the Forum on Bibliography and Scholarly Editing, and from 2020–2022, she is serving as a Delegate for the Forum on the MLA Delegate Assembly.
