Curriculum vitae (.pdf)

Dr. Rosenberg’s research interests include 20th- and 21st-century British, Irish, and Anglophone literature, global modernisms, modernism/modernity, history and theory of the novel, Postcolonial and Diaspora studies, Virginia Woolf, and James Joyce. She serves on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Modern Literature and on the Editorial Board of Woolf Studies Annual. She is currently at work on a book manuscript titled, Hellenism and Hebraism in the Twentieth Century: the Construction of Jewishness in Literary Modernism. The study synthesizes discourses about Jewishness, including debates over the Aliens Restriction Bill of 1905, early twentieth-century immigration policy, aesthetic theory, and the work of Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, Salman Rushdie, Anita Desai, and Zadie Smith.
