My name is Katie. I am currently a PhD student in English (with an emphasis in Film & Media Studies) who will be spending most of this year studying for my qualifying exams in May of 2013.

This is a blog about reading three very long lists of books for those exams. The two “historical” lists cover the canon of 20th Century American and 20th Century British literatures. The third list, which I’ve called Surface, Sentiment, & Sexuality, explores connections between critical studies in aesthetics and affect, readerly desire, and the “unspeakable” or “unrepresentable” realm of human sexuality.

In the rest of my life, I am enchanted by all things midcentury, literary, televisual, culinary, equine, argumentative, adventurous, filmic, silly, and sartorial.

Thanks for reading.
