Distinguished Teaching Fellow

Patrick Eichholz has received the 2017 Hobby Dissertation Fellowship and is not teaching this semester.  His dissertation, "The Great War and the Annus Mirabilis," studies the formal experimentations that define 1922, the "Annus Mirabilis" of British modernism, as an index of the war's effect on postwar culture.  It contests the characterization of "high" modernism as escapist by accentuating the historical exigencies that led Woolf, Eliot, and Wittgenstein to defiantly break the formal mold of their respective genres in their 1922 works.   

Publications:
