Jeff Drouin PhD

Associate Professor of English Henry Kendall College of Arts & Sciences
English Language and Literature


Jeffrey Drouin works on British and Irish modernism in the transatlantic context, with a particular focus on the novel, periodicals, and Digital Humanities. His first book, James Joyce, Science, and Modernist Print Culture: "The Einstein of English Fiction," with Routledge was published in 2014. Through teaching and research, he also explores the use of computational models to map and visualize modernist literature and avant-garde magazines in both the anglophone and francophone contexts. Drouin is currently working on The Ecclesiastical Proust Archive, a multimedia resource to support computational analysis and network modeling of Marcel Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu.
