Dr Aaron Rosenberg

Lecturer in Literary Studies


I joined the Department of English in 2023, after completing a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at King's. I hold a PhD from Cornell University, where I was a Graduate Fellow at the Society for the Humanities, as well as an MSt from Oxford and a BA from Duke University.

Research interests and PhD supervision

  • 19th and 20th century literature
  • Environmental humanities and ecocriticism
  • History and theory of the novel
  • Genre theory

My work considers how developments in literary form relate to environmental and ecological issues. My first book, Scale, Crisis, and the Modern Novel: Extreme Measures (Cambridge UP, 2023), examines how authors writing at the turn of the twentieth century developed experimental strategies and techniques for expanding the spatial and temporal range of the novel to accommodate growing concerns about deep time, evolution, globalization, and extinction. I would be interested in supervising PhDs on Victorian and Modern literature, ecocritism, and environmental humanities

I teach widely across the Victorian and modern periods, focusing on questions of literary form, critical theory, literature and science, and environmental humanities
