Title of Dissertation:
Melville's Double Vision

Professor David HUDDART

My thesis on Herman Melville's Moby Dick aims to situate Melville's canonical novel amidst contemporary nineteenth-century discourses and will investigate to what degree he can be said to be self-reflexively complicit in ‘totalising’ expansive colonial discourses and to what extent he can be said to undermine and interrogate them

Research Interests
Nineteenth and twentieth century literature; American Gothic; modernism
