Professor, Modernism

Office: 609 Strode

Research Interests
Catherine Paul's research interests include transatlantic modernist studies, poetry/poetics, literature and visual culture, museum studies, memory studies, and pedagogy. Her current book project examines Ezra Pound's writings from the 1930s and 1940s in the context of cultural nationalist movements that were a part of Mussolini's fascist regime, to show how Pound's poetics changed as a result of his encounter with fascism. In 2009, she has had a year-long fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Italian Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche to complete her book project.
