Wendy Moffat

Dickinson College

 

Wendy Moffat, Professor of English at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, is delighted to be back at the Beinecke, where she was a Gallup Fellow in 2007. Her biography of E. M. Forster (published asA Great Unrecorded History: A New Life of E. M. Forster, Farrar Straus and Giroux, 2010 and E. M. Forster: A New Life, Bloomsbury, 2010) won the Biographer’s Club Prize and was shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize in the UK, and was chosen as an ALA Stonewall Honor Book, runner-up for the PEN Biography Prize, and a New York Times Ten Best Book for 2010 in the USA. She teaches British modernism, and has recently published on Liberace, queer photography, modern fiction, and the joys of academic administration. She earned both her BA and her PhD in English at Yale.

Moffat will be reading in the Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant papers for her currently untitled book on ethics and affect at the end of the Great War. It begins with five women war correspondents picking their way across a raw battlefield on the Meuse-Argonne front in October, 1918. One of them picks up a grenade.
