Currently at USC, Ed Kozaczka's primary research interests are eighteenth-century British literature, gender studies, queer feminism, and imperialism. He earned a B.S.E. in English Education from Mansfield University in 2007 and an M.A. in English from Binghamton University (SUNY) in 2009.
His current project traces a queer-feminist, counterintuitive genealogy of the eighteenth-century British novel, and it establishes an alternative tradition to the imperial model of subjectivity that we now take as axiomatic to the rise of the novel. He has published on Jane Austen, Penelope Aubin, and Edgar Allan Poe, and is currently underway on a study of William Blake's prophetic books. Ed is finishing a scholarly edition of Aubin's novel The Noble Slaves, which will be published at the end of next year, and has started preliminary work on a scholarly edition of Maria Edgeworth's moral tale, Angelina. His next project will examine the relationship between torture and truth in eighteenth-century literary and visual media (from Aphra Behn to Marquis de Sade to Blake), exploring how different genres handled the anatomies of this relationship, and demonstrating the influence "torture-truth" had on Enlightenment understandings of being and experience.
From 2013 to 2014, Ed served as the Associate Editor of the Arab World English Journal, a peer-reviewed, open-access quarterly that publishes work on pedagogy, literature, and translation. He teaches in USC's Writing Program and in the interdisciplinary Thematic Option Honors Program, and at Mansfield University, he teaches advanced composition and literature in the online distance education program. Other schools Ed has taught at include Los Angeles City College, Binghamton University (SUNY), and various high schools in Pennsylvania.
