My name is Matthew Wilkens. I’m an assistant professor of English at Notre Dame. I work on contemporary fiction, literary theory, digital humanities, and social studies of science.
I’ve held postdocs in American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis and at the Humanities Research Center at Rice. I trained in the Literature program at Duke with Fred Jameson and Barbara Herrnstein Smith; before that, I received an MA in English from Wisconsin, an MS in physical chemistry from Berkeley, and a BS in chemistry and philosophy from William & Mary. I’d be happy to send you my CV if you’d like the gory details.
In largely unrelated news, I was once a more serious runner than I am now. I have never been a good tennis player.
