Morgan Day Frank
I teach and study American and African-American literature, with a particular interest in the history of education, cultural administration, and print capitalism. I earned my PhD in English from Stanford University, and before coming to Yale, I worked at Harvard University and Wesleyan University.
I’ve written about the history of college football, secret societies in Progressive Era literature, disgust as a literary and pedagogical feeling, and fictional scenes where characters are self-consciously not reading. My work has appeared in New Literary History, Novel, Modern Language Quarterly, Modernism/Modernity Print Plus, n+1 online, and McSweeney’s online, and I have a book, Schools of Fiction, forthcoming from Oxford University Press in December. I am currently writing a global history of the novella from the Renaissance to today.
