John Murray

PhD, University of Rhode Island

John Murray teaches courses in British literature and culture, contemporary literature, film and novel, and argumentative and persuasive writing. His research focuses on 19th- and 20th-century British literature, the history of the novel, narrative theory, film and visual culture, and literary and critical theory. He received his bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in English from the Catholic University of America (Washington, DC), Harvard University, and the University of Rhode Island, respectively. He is the author of Technologies of Power in the Victorian Period: Print Culture, Human Labor, and New Modes of Critique in Charles Dickens's Hard Times, Charlotte Brontë's Shirley, and George Eliot's Felix Holt (Cambria Press, 2010).

Murray has served as associate editor and reviewer for a number of scholarly journals and is currently a contributing editor at Sensate, an online, media-based journal for the creation, presentation, and critique of innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences that has been funded in part by the Office of the Dean of Arts and Humanities at Harvard University. Murray plans to complete a forthcoming monograph that will examine the emergence of visual culture and its effects on literature and language, class, gender, and role-playing within the Victorian period.
