About our speakers:
Dr. Susan Hegeman and Dr. Phillip Wegner are both from the Department of English at the University of Florida.
Dr. Hegeman’s research interests focus on American literature, art, history, and culture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and on the theory and intellectual history of the idea of culture. Her most recent project, The Cultural Return, traces the history of the “cultural turn” of the 1980s and 1990s to offer an account of culture’s ascendancy as a central interdisciplinary concept and the reasons for its more recent failing fortunes.
Dr. Wegner has most recently published Life Between Two Deaths, a study of U.S culture during the “Long Nineties”. He has also published articles on utopian fiction, contemporary film, science fiction, and globalization.
