Carrie Rohman is Professor of English at Lafayette College. Her environmental humanities research and teaching interests include animal studies, performance, modernism, critical theory, and posthumanism. Her first book, Stalking the Subject: Modernism and the Animal (Columbia, 2009), addresses the discourse of animality in modernist literature, and she co-edited the collection Virginia Woolf and the Natural World: Selected Papers of the Twentieth Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf (Clemson, 2011). Her second monograph, Choreographies of the Living: Bioaesthetics in Literature, Art, and Performance (Oxford, 2018) examines the bio-impulse at the heart of all aesthetics, and calls for a re-thinking of the artistic as a more-than-human capacity that has performative embodiment at its center.
Rohman’s work has appeared in such journals as Modernism/modernity, Hypatia, American Literature, Mosaic, Criticism, Deleuze Studies, and in a number of edited volumes. Rohman serves on the Editorial Advisory Board for the Series in Animals and Literature at Palgrave/Macmillan. She has also served on the Executive Committee for the Development of Human-Animal Studies in Academia, under the aegis of the Animals and Society Institute, since 2005.
