College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
James O. Freedman Professor of LettersOffice:
I write and teach across disciplinary boundaries, with interests in Victorian and modernist fiction, poetics, narrative theory, film and media, and art history. After twenty books on such subjects, excerpts (with commentary) from my critical work, Attention Spans: Garrett Stewart, a Reader, ed. David LaRocca, is forthcoming from Bloomsbury Press. In my frequent service as chair of the Graduate Admissions Committee over the last three decades, I have taken part in the English department’s ongoing commitment not just to diversity and inclusion but to active recruitment and mentoring in this area.
