James Dobson

Personal Information

First name: 
James
Last name: 
Dobson
Brief Bio: 

I am a literary and cultural critic who specializes in intellectual history and U.S. autobiographical writing in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My broader intellectual interests include phenomenological accounts of lived experience and how early psychology, sociology, and historiography contributed to and were influenced by literary accounts of the self. In my most recent manuscript project, "The Awkward Age of Autobiography," I examine the partial, repetitive, and nonlinear forms taken by American fin-de-siècle autobiography and the relationship between these formal shifts to questions of historiography within the period.
