Dr. Patricia Moran

Research Interests

My research in recent years brings together my interests in psychology, narrative and female embodiment to show how affect is central to an understanding of female development and female subjectivity. Specifically, I focus on women's novels of artistic development that explore the connections between embodied female subjectivity and affect. I am currently working on two monographs, Antonia White and Manic-Depressive Illness (under contract with Edinburgh University Press), and States of Mind: Modernist Women Writers and Affect.

Teaching Interests

Modernism; Women's Writing; Feminist and Psychoanalytic Theory
