I’m Ted Howell, a PhD candidate in English Literature at Temple University completing a dissertation on modernist fiction, early ecology, and the Anthropocene. I teach in the Department of Writing Arts at Rowan University, and also dabble in DH. My course on “cli-fi” has been featured in ReutersThe Atlantic and The Chronicle of Higher Education. I wrote a bit about that course on Medium. My essay “An Imperialist Inherits the Earth: Howards End in the Anthropocene” appears in MLQ, and my chapter on early ecology and climate change in the future histories of H.G. Wells and Olaf Stapledon is forthcoming in the collection Modernism and the Anthropocene. This academic year I am leading a Ulysses Reading Group at the Rosenbach Museum and Library, and I recently chaired a special session at the 2017 MLA Convention, “Literary History for the Anthropocene.”
