Pauline Walter Professor of English and Comparative LiteratureEditor, James Joyce QuarterlyDirector, Modernist Journals Project and President of Modernist Studies AssociationZink Hall 342
My teaching and research focuses on modernist studies, James Joyce, periodicals, media theory, and the digital humanities. My books range widely on topics in the early twentieth century and includes studies of snobbery, genre fiction, libel law, and Joyce. Currently, I am continuing to expand the Modernist Journals Project as Editor of the James Joyce Quarterly, and Co-Editor of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies in partnership with Prof Mark Morrisson (Penn State). My current research focuses on post-humanism, twentieth-century representations of the corpse, and what I'm tentatively calling "zombie modernism."
