Matthew Taylor

Matthew A. Taylor is an Associate Professor in the department of English & Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where he works on the intersections of science, literature, and philosophy in a transatlantic context. His first book, Universes without Us: Posthuman Cosmologies in American Literature, was published in 2013 by the University of Minnesota Press, and he currently is completing two manuscripts: one on how extreme spatiotemporal scales affect ethical and political possibilities at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, and the other on figures of biological life in pulp fiction, American pragmatism, and biopolitics.

Dr. Taylor's talk is entitled "On Not Saving the World."

This event will be held on Friday, April 22 at 4:30pm in the CLA 1.302E. Directions to CLA 1.302E can be found here.
