About Joel Duncan

I received my PhD in English in 2017 from the University of Notre Dame with my dissertation The Song in the Machine: Organic Forms of American Poetry. I am currently working on a book project funded by the Swedish Research Council entitled "Poetic Drive: Experimental American Poetry in the Age of Automobility." This project elaborates how American poets and artists have used the car to craft experimental works that engage social conflicts around whiteness, masculinity, and ecology. I have published or have forthcoming articles in Modernism/modernity, Arizona Quarterly, and Textual Practice. I have previously been a Lecturer at the Academy of Art and Design at GU, and have a broad experience of teaching both literature and academic writing.
