Miller Publishes Article on Political Engagement and the Contemporary Novel in TSLL

 “The American Protest Novel in a Time of Terror: Carolyn Chute’s Merry Men” by Gregory Leon Miller

Gregory Miller, Ph.D., who teaches in the Departments of English and Communications, published “The American Protest Novel in a Time of Terror: Carolyn Chute’s ‘Merry Men,'” in Texas Studies in Literature and Language. Chute’s novel focuses on the dehumanizing effects of economic disparity during the Reagan era. Placing the novel within the context of American literature and the protest novel in particular, Miller uses the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze to explore the merging of politics and aesthetics in Chute’s work.

Gregory Miller, Ph.D., who teaches in the Departments of English and Communications, presented “Abstraction and Narrative Cinema” at the Modernist Studies Association in Montreal. In his paper, Miller suggests that revisiting the concept of photogénie may open the way to a productive (if initially paradoxical) link between narrative cinema and Modernist concepts of abstraction.
