|Description||Jessica Hurley works on twentieth and twenty-first century American literatures, with a particular focus on how narrative forms organize our literary, social, and infrastructural worlds. Her book manuscript, Infrastructures of the Apocalypse: American Literature and the Nuclear Complex, argues that existing accounts of the nuclear as a sublime paradox or a future threat occlude its very tangible operations in the present, as budgets, laws, environments, and other quotidian infrastructures are formed and deformed by the state’s commitment to nuclear technology. |
Presented by the Department of English and the Society of Fellows.
