David Alworth

David Alworth is John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University, where he teaches in the Department of English and the Program in Literature and History. His scholarship and teaching focuses on modern and contemporary American literature, the history and theory of the novel, visual media, and methods of interpretation. His first book, Site Reading: Fiction, Art, Social Form, examines six sites––supermarkets, dumps, roads, ruins, asylums, and bomb shelters––that were crucial to post-WWII American literature and visual art. He is currently completing two book projects, Art Novels, on the relationship between the contemporary novel and the visual/performing arts and a collaborative venture Covering the Novel, that considers contemporary fiction and the art of the book cover.
