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

His dissertation, "The Leap and the Gap: Writing Suicide in Britain, 1844-1930," explores the ways in which Victorian and modernist fiction confronted the epistemological crisis of suicide as well as its relationship to suicide narratives in the popular press and in foundational sociological and psychoanalytic texts.  He has been published in Nabokov Studies and has an article in the forthcoming issue of The Harold Pinter Review.

Aaron teaches English and composition at Lehman and City College, CUNY.  Click here to see him speak about Lehman's new Multimodal Learning Lab.
