S. Pearl Brilmyer received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the University of Texas at Austin and her B.A. in English and philosophy from the University of Scranton. Her work lies at the intersection of the history of philosophy, science, and literature with a focus on 19th-century England. Her current book project concerns the philosophical implications of the disarticulation of character from plot at the end of the nineteenth century. Other research interests include: theories of will and drive in 19th-century German philosophy, questions of temporality in feminist and queer theory, and materialisms old and new.
Professor Brilmyer has recently published in PMLA and Representations, and she is currently editing a special issue of GLQ: A Journal of Gay and Lesbian Studies entitled "The Ontology of the Couple" with Filippo Trentin and Zairong Xiang. Her work has previously been supported by the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry, the DAAD (German Exchange Service), and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.
