Nathan K. Hensley works on nineteenth-century British literature (fiction, poetry, and political writing), critical theory, and the novel. His other interests include Anglophone modernism and the cultures of globalization. He is currently finishing a book project exploring how Victorian writers expanded the capacities of literary form to account for the ongoing violence of liberal modernity. A second project, now in its early stages, brings literary methods in dialogue with Victorian and contemporary ecological thinking to investigate how the nineteenth century imagined catastrophe.  In collaboration with Professor Brian Hochman, Hensley founded and directs the Modernities Working Group.
