Brooke Clarke, Graduate Student Intern
Brooke recently finished her fourth-year as a PhD candidate in the Department of English where she uses theories of ecology to question and analyze literary narratives. In her work, ecology is a mode of reading that attends to how impressionistic literary devices, such as voice, tone, and rhythm, operate collectively in a text and are not easily extractable or definable from one another. Her dissertation, "In the Mood: Ambiences of Sexuality and Temporality in Modernist Fiction, 1895-1945," studies literary ambience in British and American modernist fiction with particular attention to the literature’s experimental stylings of sexuality and temporality.
