Trevor Laurence Jockims’s teaching and research interests center on literature in its interaction with other modes of thought and expression, particularly the visual arts and philosophy. Additionally, he works on the Digital Humanities, experimental and avant-garde cinema, as well as the contemporary American and European novel. Prior to coming to New York University, Jockims taught literature and film at various CUNY campuses, including Hunter College and City College. He has published articles and book chapters on ekphrastic poetry, photography, the documentary film essay, pastoral lyric, and representations of war in Eastern European cinema. His fiction, reviews, and essays have appeared in The Times Literary Supplement, Book Forum, The Believer, Descant, and The Journal of Experimental Fiction.
