Susan Navarette

Professor Navarette's field of teaching specialization is genre and cultural studies, with a primary interest in the English novel from its 18th century origins through its early 20th century treatments. Research interests include 19th century British culture and society; women's literature and culture; the influence of 19th and early 20th century scientific theory on literary form; and contemporary popular responses to technology and scientific discovery. She is working on a second book concerning representations in romances of Empire of the dissolution of the English language (what she calls "linguistic miscegenation"); her first book, The Shape of Fear (1998, UP of Kentucky), explores the relationship between 19th century theories of degeneration and horror fiction.
