Joanna Scutts is a literary critic and cultural historian with teaching and research interests in all aspects of modernism. She holds a BA in English from the University of Cambridge, MA from the University of Sussex, and a PhD in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University, where her research focused on World War One commemorative practices and their impact on British literary modernism. Her Gallatin writing and research seminars, on "The Return of the Soldier" and "Memory and the City" respectively, explore questions of cultural memory and identity, and both focus on the ways that literature shapes our understanding of history, gender, and place. She has written book reviews and essays for publications including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Nation, and is currently at work on a new book project about self-help culture and feminism in the 1930s.
