Salton-Cox, Glyn

Assistant Professor of English, Affiliate of Feminist Studies

Education: 

PhD Yale University
BA University of Cambridge

My research interests include Marxism, queer theory, mid-twentieth century literature and culture, nineteenth- and twentieth-century intellectual history, the modern novel, Weimar Berlin, Soviet aesthetics, British broadcast comedy, and comparative urbanisms. With Leo Mellor, I guest edited a special edition of Critical Quarterly on "The Long 1930s" (October 2015); my work has also appeared in MLQ and Comparative Literature. I am currently working on a monograph about queer writers of the 1930s who engaged with Communism, including Christopher Isherwood, Sylvia Townsend Warner, and Katharine Burdekin. Book projects on the intellectual, literary, and cultural history of the lumpenproletariat as an alternative genealogy of the revolutionary subject, and on British comedy's compensatory responses to decolonization are in planning.
