2020, BA English, George Washington University
Ryan Carroll is a PhD student in the Department of English and Comparative Literature. He is interested in media technologies and mediation as literary technology in 19th-century Transatlantic literature, with focus on the way that the documentary form (which includes epistolary novels, slave narratives, and sensation fiction) serves as a mode of theorization, creation, and possibility-making in the imperial world. His interests also include global modernism, literary theory and form, hermeneutic phenomenology, religion, and magical realism.
Outside of academia, Ryan writes on theology, particularly queer and liberation theology. His work has been published by theology publications and the Jesuit Conference of Canada and North America.
