Assistant Professor of English

Professor Lauren Brozovich specializes in modern and contemporary American literature with an emphasis in poetry.  Her current book project, Environmental Spiral: Scientific Mediation in Twentieth-Century American Poetry, traces the literary, artistic, and scientific developments that took place from 1912 until 2012, as they provided possibilities for the transformation of environmental representation.  She has research and teaching interests in twentieth- and twenty-first-century American literature, modern and contemporary poetry and poetics, ecocriticism, literature and science, and literature and the visual arts.  Her second book project will consider the influence of film theory on the style of several American poets and novelists of the 1920s.  Her research has been supported by an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Humanistic Studies and numerous grants and fellowships from Harvard University.  Prof. Brozovich previously taught at Deerfield Academy and in the English Department and in the Core Curriculum at Harvard University.  At Harvard, she was nominated for the university-wide Joseph R. Levenson Teaching Prize and was awarded the Thomas Temple Hoopes Prize for Excellence in the Art of Teaching as well as the Harvard University Certificate of Distinction in Teaching.
