Personal Pronouns:

Eric A. Lewis is a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His research centers on reader-character relationships, consumerism, and the world literary marketplace, and his peer-reviewed essays have appeared in Interventions and the Canadian Journal of Irish Studies. His book manuscript, tentatively titled “Antagonistic Reading,” examines twentieth- and twenty-first-century Global Anglophone novels that frame their readers as antagonists in their storyworlds. Such characterizations of readers defy traditional notions of reader identification with characters and the experience of reading and call for a new account of this central aspect of literary studies. His courses have focused on the design and marketing of postcolonial fiction and representation and reception of various forms of otherness in horror films.

He is producer and co-host of tipsyturvy Ulysses, a podcast celebrating the fun bits of James Joyce's Ulysses to engage readers both new and old.
