Steve Pinkerton

Full-time Lecturer



Steve Pinkerton (PhD, Cornell University) studies twentieth-century literature, with particular interests in both British and American modernism. Before coming to Case Western he held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Texas–Austin, where he conducted research for an ongoing book project on the literary aesthetics of blasphemy. His other writings reflect a range of interests in twentieth-century culture—including literary engagements with jazz, psychoanalysis, and the second law of thermodynamics—and have appeared in journals such as Modernism/Modernity, Studies in the Novel, Journal of Modern Literature, and African American Review.
