Prof Daniel Katz
BA (Reed College), PhD (Stanford University). My research mostly focuses on modernism and its aftermath extending to the present day, and I have just finished a monograph on the American poet Jack Spicer. Recent and forthcoming articles include work on the American modernist novel, Robert Smithson, James Schuyler, Samuel Beckett, Ezra Pound, Charles Olson, and Peter Gizzi. I have been an Executive Board member of the Samuel Beckett Society, and am affiliated with Warwick's Centre for Research in Philosophy, Literature and the Arts. I welcome applications from potential doctoral students in modernism, American poetry, twentieth and twenty-first century poetry and poetics, critical theory (particularly psychoanalysis, and the work of J. Derrida), and my other areas of expertise, and look favourably on comparatist problematics and work across languages (especially French, Spanish, and Italian) or national literatures.
Modernism, the avant-garde, and post-modernism; psychoanalysis, philosophy, and critical theory; transatlantic literary studies; translation and multilingualism; poetry and poetics; the lyric subject, and autobiographical constructions.
