Christina M. Colvin specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century American literature, the environmental humanities, and animal studies. Her current book project, The Disorder of Species: Animals in the American Anthropocene, examines how literary texts expand, challenge, and complement the abilities of the sciences to describe nonhuman animal complexity in the current and previous century. Her peer-reviewed work appears in the Journal of Modern Literature, Evental Aesthetics, the International Journal of Comparative Psychology (co-authored with Dr. Lori Marino), and is forthcoming in ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment. Dr. Colvin has taught courses in American literature and culture, environmental literature, modern and contemporary poetry, and multimodal composition.
