2014 Ph.D. Graduate
Dissertation Advisor(s): Jed Esty
"Untimely Citizens: Late Realism in Twentieth-Century British Literature"

Assistant Professor, University of Cincinnati

Philip Tsang’s research and teaching interests include twentieth-century British, Irish, and Anglophone literatures, the history of the novel, narrative theory, and western aesthetics from Kant to Adorno. He is currently completing his first book project, which traces a lineage of “late realism” that grapples with Britain’s imperial decline over the twentieth century, and accounts for the historical, cultural, and aesthetic significance of the persistent Anglocentrism underlying that literary trajectory from Henry James to V. S. Naipaul. He received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania.
