About Margret Gunnarsdottir Champi

  • Office hour: By appointment

 

My teaching and research interests include medieval literature, the British and American modernist writers, contemporary British fiction and literary theory. What I particularly like to do in my teaching is to introduce students to history and older literary texts through modern eyes, for instance, by pairing a postmodern novel with a tale from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales or by linking ideas from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to concepts in contemporary critical theory and philosophy. I’ve published articles on medieval poetry and the contemporary novel. My new book, Dwelling in Language: Character, Psychoanalysis and Literary Consolations, will be published in 2013. This is a study of the mode of being of character in literature – a so-called ontological study –, anchored in the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan’s ideas about human subjectivity, language and ethics. My current project is concerned with reevaluating British modernist writers, such as Virginia Woolf, D. H. Lawrence, T. S. Eliot and Katherine Mansfield, in the light of recent ideas about intermediality, transculturalism and the postmodern community.
