My name is Aaron Botwick.  I am ABD in the English program at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.

My dissertation, "The Leap and the Gap: Writing Suicide in Britain, 1871-1920," explores the ways in which late-Victorian and modernist fiction confronted the epistemological crisis of suicide as well as their relationship to parallel suicide narratives in the popular press, sociology, and psychoanalysis.  I have been published in Nabokov Studies and have an article in the forthcoming issue of The Harold Pinter Review.

I teach English and composition at Lehman and City College, CUNY.  Click here to see my colleagues and me speak about our new Multimodal Learning Lab.

My other research interests include Holocaust literature, genre fiction, and modern drama.  I also blog about theater at
