Robert Volpicelli

Robert Volpicelli, a PSU Alumnus and past CALS Dissertation Fellow, recently published his first book, "Transatlantic Modernism and the US Lecture Tour," with Oxford University Press. Deriving from his dissertation project, "Transatlantic Modernism" is the first comprehensive study of modernist authors on the US lecture tour, a widespread phenomenon that accounted for many Americans’ first encounter with international modernism. Attending to these encounters, the volume reroutes our understanding of modernism away from the magazines and other mass media that have so far characterized its circulation and toward the unique form of cultural distribution that coalesced around the tour. Congratulations, Robert, who now serves as Assistant Professor of English at Randolph-Macon College (VA)!
