John Attridge

Senior Lecturer

I am a Senior Lecturer in English in the School of the Arts and Media. Most of my research deals with modernist fiction; particular focuses include modernist conceptions of authorship, the relationship between literature and specialization, technological media and the cultural history of trust. I am co-editor of the collection Modernist Work: Labor, Aesthetics, and the Work of Art (Bloomsbury, 2019) and have published articles in journals such as ELH, Modernism/modernity and Modern Fiction Studies.
