I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My dissertation project explores the late 20th-century finance sector as a site for novelists not simply to explore capital and labor but instead to reconsider near-archaic questions of embodiment, secrecy, and invisible—even preternatural—forces. More broadly, my research interests include Post45 American literature; 20th-century American political and economic history, and American popular religion, particularly as it finds itself in conversation with issues of race and larger discourses of identity politics.
