Assistant Professor of English, UC Irvine
Mark Goble received his Ph. D. from Stanford University, where he specialized in U.S. literature after 1865, with concentrations in film and media studies, American cultural history, and poetry and poetics. His present research examines a range of connections between literature and media, focusing on scenes of communication in American texts from the late novels of Henry James to Hollywood cinema of the 1930s. Currently at work on a manuscript entitled Beautiful Circuits: The Mediated Life in America, 1870-1940, he is also interested in the history of recorded sound, modernism and media aesthetics, and popular cultures of technology. His articles include “Cameo Appearances; or, When Gertrude Stein Checks In to Grand Hotel” Modern Language Quarterly 62: 2 (June 2001) and ”’Our Country’s Black and White Past’: Film and the Figures of History in Frank O’Hara,” American Literature 71: 1 (March 1999). Goble teaches courses on U. S. poetry and visual culture, film and media theory, and on figures including James, Wharton, Stein, Williams, and the New York School. He was a member of the Digital Cultures Project, a University of California Multi-Campus Research Group.
