John Morgenstern’s research and teaching interests include transatlantic modernist studies; intermedial approaches to American, British, and Continental European literature; poetry and poetics; and translation. After completing his doctorate at the University of Oxford, he taught for a year in southern Germany before joining the English department at Clemson. His current book project reconstructs the Parisian cultural controversies that T. S. Eliot witnessed during his student year in France (1910–11), recovering and analyzing arguments concerning literature, the extraliterary arts, religion, philosophy, sociology, and politics that not only resituate the main ideas of Eliot’s work but also those of literary modernism more generally.
