Jennifer Gutman

In 2021-2022, Jennifer Gutman will be a fifth-year, joint-Ph.D. student in English and Comparative Media Analysis & Practice (CMAP). Her dissertation explores how contemporary realist novels respond to the distinct forms of crisis, risk, and uncertainty that characterize life at the onset of the Anthropocene. Jennifer's article “Cyborg Storytelling: Virtual Embodiment in Jennifer Egan’s ‘Black Box’” is published in Critique: Studies in Contemporary Fiction. She received a 2021-2022 Ingram Graduate Fellowship and Robert Penn Warren Environments Fellowship in conjunction with the Climate and Society Grand Challenge Initiative.
