CV

I’m interested in the way that literature is both affected by, and in turn enriches our view of, other aspects of history and culture, especially with respect to evolutionary theory, blues and jazz, and the struggles of working people in an industrial (and now post-industrial) world.  With writers like Henry James, Willa Cather, and Ralph Ellison as my guides, in my research and in my teaching I explore the ways in which authors are both challenged and inspired to make literary art out of their engagement with such cultural and historical phenomena.

For more about my interests in literature and literary theory, check out my blog, titled Literature: Fragments from the Missing Manual.
