Departmental TF in American Studies
Evan is a PhD candidate in American Studies who focuses on art history and literature through the peculiar lens of time theory, or chronocriticism. Time: it’s that thing that keeps everything from happening at once. So how does a particular culture’s temporal imagination affect its ethics? Just how much future is there, anyways? He is also very interested in ecocriticism, the history of science, cosmology, speculative fiction, and all things Herman Melville. He was a Harvard Horizons scholar, a former curatorial intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and recently was one of the lucky few 38th voyagers aboard the whaler Charles W. Morgan. He received his B.A. in Art History and English from Vassar College in 2011.
