Eugenia Zuroski Jenkins

ECF Editor Eugenia (Gena) Zuroski specializes in eighteenth-century British literature and culture. Gena received her PhD (2005) and MA from Brown University and her BA from Columbia University (Summa Cum Laude). Her research and teaching interests include genealogies of the modern subject, orientalism, material culture, and the proliferation of various forms of fiction in the eighteenth century.

Her book A Taste for China: English Subjectivity and the Prehistory of Orientalism (Oxford University Press, 2013) argues that chinoiserie played an integral role in the formation of modern English subjectivity. She is now working on a book tentatively entitled “A Funny Thing: Prehistories of the Uncanny,” which examines how “funny forms” of the long eighteenth century—objects both risible and strange—unsettle culture and animate unexpected dimensions of subjective experience.

En français:

La rédactrice d’ECF Eugenia Zuroski est spécialisée dans la littérature et la culture britannique du XVIIIe siècle. Gena a obtenu son doctorat (en 2005) et sa maîtrise à l’Université de Brown et son baccalauréat de l’Université Columbia (Summa Cum Laude). Sa recherche et ses intérêts d’enseignements comprennent les généalogies de sujet moderne, l’orientalisme, la culture matérielle et la prolifération de diverses formes de fiction dans le XVIIIe siècle. Son livre intitulé A Taste for China: English Subjectivity and the Prehistory of Orientalism (2013) stipule que la chinoiserie a joué un rôle intégral dans le développement de la subjectivité moderne anglaise. Présentement, elle travaille sur un livre dont qui s’intitule provisoirement « A Funny Thing: Prehistories of the Uncanny » qui examine la manière dont les « Funny forms » du XVIIIe siècle—les objets risible et étrange—peuvent perturber la culture et animer des dimensions d’une manière inattendue l’expérience subjective.
