David Jamieson


I received my PhD from the Department of English & Comparative Literature at Columbia University. My research focuses on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and in particular on conceptions of disgust and how they developed alongside colonial, scientific, and gendered thinking. Across my research and my teaching, I am interested in how reading teaches us to imagine the world, how writing teaches us to explain it, and how we can use both of these to develop a practice of making connections.
