Alexander Moudrov

Alexander MoudrovAlexander Moudrov received his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from The City University of New York’s Graduate Center. His dissertation, The Rise of the American Culture of Sensationalism: 1620-1860, is an interdisciplinary project that traces the formation of the American literary tradition while emphasizing its reliance on various forms of scandalous and provocative rhetoric. His recent publications include “The Scourge of Foreign Vagabonds: George Thompson and the Influence of European Sensationalism in Popular Antebellum Literature,” “Early American Crime Fiction: Origins to Urban Gothic,” and “Nabokov’s Invitation to Plato’s Beheading.” As an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Comparative Literature at Queens College, he teaches courses in global literatures and intercultural relations, as well as interdisciplinary courses that bridge literary studies with other disciplines, particularly philosophy, religion, and history.
