Salton-Cox, Glyn

Associate Professor of English, Affiliate of Feminist Studies, Affiliate of History

Education: 

PhD Yale University
BA University of Cambridge

My research interests include Marxism, queer theory and social history, 1930s literature, nineteenth and twentieth century British, French, and German intellectual history, the modern novel, Weimar Berlin, Soviet aesthetics, twentieth-century British comedy, and comparative urbanisms. My monograph, Queer Communism and the Ministry of Love: Sexual Revolution in British Writing of the 1930s (Edinburgh UP, 2018) examines queer writers of the 1930s who engaged with Communism, including Christopher Isherwood, Sylvia Townsend Warner, and Katharine Burdekin. With Leo Mellor, I guest edited a special edition of Critical Quarterly on "The Long 1930s" (October 2015). Among other venues, my work has also appeared in Modern Language Quarterly, Comparative Literature, A History of 1930s British Literature (Cambridge UP, 2019), Keywords: A Journal of Cultural Materialism, and Twentieth-Century Communism. I am currently working on 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.
