Bio


Terry Castle has taught English literature at Stanford since 1983. She specializes in the history of the novel, especially the works of Defoe, Richardson, Fielding, and Austen. But she has taught a wide variety of other subjects too: the literature of the First World War, British modernism, Virginia Woolf, Radclyffe Hall, and other twentieth-century women writers, psychoanalytic theory, literature and opera, and gay and lesbian writing. She has written seven books: Clarissa's Ciphers: Meaning and Disruption in Richardson's 'Clarissa' (1982); Masquerade and Civilization: The Carnivalesque in Eighteenth-Century English Culture and Fiction (1986); The Apparitional Lesbian: Female Homosexuality and Modern Culture (1993); The Female Thermometer: Eighteenth-Century Culture and the Invention of the Uncanny (1995), Noel Coward and Radclyffe Hall: Kindred Spirits (1996); Boss Ladies, Watch Out! Essays on Women, Sex, and Writing (2002); Courage, Mon Amie (2002), and The Professor: A Sentimental Education (2010). She is the editor of a prize-winning anthology, The Literature of Lesbianism: A Historical Anthology from Ariosto to Stonewall (2003). Several of her essays have likewise won individual prizes--including the William Riley Parker Prize awarded annually by the Modern Language Association for the best critical essay of the year. In 1995 her book The Female Thermometer was a finalist for the PEN Spielvogel-Diamondstein Award for the Art of the Essay. Her 2010 collection of personal essays, The Professor, was named as a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. She writes regularly for the London Review of Books, New Republic, New York Review of Books, Harper's, Atlantic, Slate, and other magazines and journals.

Castle is also a visual artist and collector of tintypes, anonymous photos, Outsider Art, vintage postcards, art zines, artists' books, and other paper ephemera. Some of her own artwork can be seen on her blog, Fevered Brain Productions [ http://terry-castle-blog.blogspot.com/ ]; Instagram [ https://www.instagram.com /chateauthierry/ ]; and SaatchiArt [ https://www.saatchiart.com/thierrychateau .].

I continue to write on a mélange of intellectual topics and themes-- some of which have now absorbed me for more than 40 years: English and American literature, past and present; British cultural and social history, especially of the 18th-20th centuries; the First World War and its aftermath; feminism and its discontents; post-Enlightenment women writers and intellectuals; literature and the visual arts; the history of criticism and taste; stylistics and the English prose essay; British and European modernism; satire; autobiography and memoir; the history of the novel; Freud and psychoanalysis; contemporary art and photography; jazz and other kinds of popular music; the history of gay and lesbian culture and style; camp, sexual travesty and impersonation; the carnivalesque; Outsider Art, zine culture, graffiti and other informal and/or rebellious kinds of artistic production.
