Ross, Stephen

Stephen Ross's research interests range over the fields of modernism and literary or critical theory. He has in the past published research on individual modernist authors, modernism at large, and the field of modernist studies. In all his work, he tries to work through how theory can help us understand cultural production, and - importantly - vice versa. He is at present keenly interested in how modernism emerged as a distinctly euro-anglo-american phenomenon, and how it is again being exported as the field of modernist studies expands to include works and artists hitherto known as postcolonial. Above all, he is interested in the kind of work accomplished when cultural phenomena find their way into art works in figurative forms: when tropes or the rhetoric of a given phenomenon comes to dominate a given artistic discourse (e.g., spiritualist rhetoric in modernist novels, or tropes of the internet in contemporary cinema).

Waite, Gary

Gary Waite is currently a Professor of History at the University of New Brunswick. While focusing primarily on the history of popular culture and religion in early-modern Europe, his interests are eclectic, ranging from the study of the import of individual radical reformers such as David Joris, to the analysis of the vernacular Dutch drama societies called the Chambers of Rhetoric and their involvement in religious reform, to the study of the Reformation and the revival of witch-hunting in the sixteenth century. In particular, Dr. Waite seeks to find connections within and between sub-fields of history, such as Anabaptism and witchcraft, or drama and religion, that have often been neglected. While continuing to look for intersections in the Reformation and demonology/witchcraft fields, he has recently completed a research program on popular attitudes toward Jews and Muslims in the vernacular literature of western Europe in the seventeenth century. He is now engaged in a new research p ...
