Malcah Effron

Full-time Lecturer

Malcah Effron teaches and writes about the role of narrative and its devices in shaping our experiences of reality, especially as presented through popular genres. Her classes emphasize critical inquiry into modes of representation as both a means for understanding assumptions about the world and a model for presenting our own ideas to the world. She holds degrees from Washington University in St. Louis (AB English and Mathematics, 2004), the University of Chicago (MA Humanities, 2005), and Newcastle University in England (PhD English literature, 2010). Her research appears in Narrative, The Journal of Narrative Theory, and several edited collections, including her own The Millennial Detective: Essays on Trends in Crime Fiction, Film, and Television, 1990-2010 (McFarland, 2011).
