Paltin brief CV 2023

She/her or they/them. I am an associate professor of English at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and associate research faculty in UBC’s Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice. My current research focuses on the crowds of British and Irish modernism and on modern and contemporary theories of collective identification and group action. I also hold more general interests in modernist studies, critical and cultural theory, studies in gender and sexuality, literature and mind, and literature and environment. At UBC, I supervise graduate research and teach courses in modern Anglophone literatures, modernist studies, and critical and social theory, alongside specialized undergraduate and graduate courses in my research fields. In 2017-2018 I served as co-chair of the Critical Studies in Sexuality program with Dr. Janice Stewart.

I received an M.A. (2008)  and Ph.D. (Dec. 2013) in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a B.A. s.c.l. in English from the University of Scranton. In the past, I have taught music and other subjects at the secondary level, and have done a fair bit of choral conducting and singing, as well as studying piano and classical guitar. I’ve been studying violin since shortly before the pandemic, when it became a welcome pandemic hobby.
