Brian Gingrich’s interests range across nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature on both sides of the Atlantic, with particular focus on the novel, modernism, and cinema. His essays and reviews have appeared or are forthcoming in Twentieth-Century Literature, New Literary History, Women’s Studies, and collections on Shakespeare and the short story.
His book, The Pace of Fiction (forthcoming from Oxford University Press), shows how narrative pacing transforms from the rise of the novel through realism and modernism.
He has taught a variety of subjects, including nineteenth-century fiction, modernism, children’s literature, cinema, and the contemporary novel. At Sewanee, he is teaching courses on James Joyce and modern poetry.
