I have published two scholarly books about literature, animals, art, gender, creativity, and performance, and have also published many journal articles and book chapters on these topics. As Professor of English at Lafayette College, I teach in the areas of literature, writing, animal studies, ecology, dance, and literary theory.
Choreographies of the Living: Bioaesthetics in Literature, Art, and Performance. New York: Oxford University Press, 2018.
“Given its clear, accessible style and its focus on engagements with animality in twentieth and twenty first-century literature, art, and performance, Choreographies of the Living promises to have broad appeal for specialists and students across the arts and humanities… this watershed study will be relevant not only for readers based in animal studies and modernist, postmodernist, and/or contemporary literature, but also for readers interested in dance, theater and performance studies, cultural studies, history, and philosophy.”
—DAVID HERMAN, author of Narratology beyond the Human: Storytelling and Animal Life (OUP, 2018)
“Choreographies of the Living constitutes a highly important and original intervention into the field of animal studies in the humanities. Carrie Rohman has carried existing arguments about the centrality of animality to aesthetic activity a significant step further, arguing that, in her terms, the aesthetic is animal… an ambitious argument but one that Rohman makes very persuasively.”
—MARIANNE DEKOVEN, Professor Emerita of English, Rutgers University
Choreographies of the Living is available from OUP, amazon.com, and many other booksellers.
Stalking the Subject: Modernism and the Animal. New York: Columbia University Press, 2009.
“Smart, timely, and incisive, Stalking the Subject makes an important contribution to modernist criticism and consolidates crucial work in animal studies. Carrie Rohman draws on Cary Wolfe’s seminal Animal Rites to frame psychoanlaysis from Sigmund Freud to Slavoj Zizek in Anglo-Amerian modernist literature from H. G. Wells to Djuna Barnes. Especially notable is her vigorous contribution to the ongoing delineation of D. H. Lawrence’s posthumanism. Stalking the Subject revises modernism from the side of the animal other” —Bruce Clarke, Texas Tech University
Stalking the Subject is available from CUP, amazon.com, and many other booksellers.
