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.
