Professional Description

Pamela McCallum is Professor Emerita of English and a Life Fellow of Clare Hall, Cambridge University. Her research and teaching interests are situated in the areas of cultural materialism, literary and narrative theory, the representation of history and gender, and twentieth-century British literature. She was one of the founding members of the editorial group for Cultural Critique at the University of Minnesota, and she is the former editor of ARIEL in the Calgary English Department. Her research is focused around questions of representation, mainly in narrative, but sometimes in other cultural texts (film, visual arts). She is currently completing a book on the representation of history in narratives of the French Revolution that analyzes both fictional and non-fictional texts. She recently edited a collection of essays with Wendy Faith, Linked Histories (2005) and she has annotated and introduced an edition of Raymond Williams’s classic study of drama and history, Modern Tragedy (2005). In her teaching she is interested in the interrelationship between theory and literature: not only how theories can be used to analyzed literary texts, but also the questions creative texts raise for theoretical texts.
