English Research Colloquium

The English Department's Research Colloquium is dedicated to the presentation and discussion of new research by the department's faculty, across all fields. The Colloquium has a particular emphasis on work in its early stages, and on work that pushes the boundaries of its field. We meet twice each semester. All are welcome.

Jon Greenberg specializes in modernism -- British, Irish, Anglophone, and American -- and more generally, 20th century literature. His first book, a study of modernist satire, has recently (fall 2011) been published by Cambridge University Press, and he is working on a second book for the same press, to be titled "The Cambridge Introduction to Satire." His edited collection of essays on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World was published by Palgrave in 2016. He is developing a book on the role of Darwin's writing and thought in modernism.
