Edward H. Howell

Edward H. Howell is a Graduate Assistant in the English program. His primary area of interest is the twentieth-century novel, with a focus on how modernist authors implement romantic and religious themes and terminology to redefine what it means to be a "self". He is currently writing his MA thesis on the fiction of James Joyce, arguing that Joyce adopts historically romantic and religious senses of the word "soul" to form a hybrid definition from which stems his method of artistic creation and cultural resistance. He plans to continue his study of literature at the PhD level beginning this fall.
