Jessica Resvick

Jessica Resvick is an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of German Studies. Her research is centered on poetic realism and the age of Goethe, and she is currently at work on a book manuscript, provisionally entitled Reading Recognition: The Poetics of Poetic Realism, which charts the media historical and epistemological underpinnings of realist narrative prose. Other research interests include Goethe reception, media theory, the history of philology, architecture in literature, and the history of science. An article on repetition and textual transmission in Goethe’s Faust recently appeared in the Goethe Yearbook, and an article on Stifter’s editorial practices is forthcoming in a volume on nineteenth-century print culture. Her teaching works to bridge literature and science, and she is offering several courses (Mind Reading: Media and the Brain, and The Case Study: From Detective Fiction to Medical Narratives) that investigate the cross-pollination between these fields. An alumna of the Dartmouth M.A. program in Comparative Literature, Jessica Resvick returned to the Upper Valley after completing her Ph.D. in Germanic Studies at the University of Chicago. She also holds an Sc.B. in German Studies and Neuroscience from Brown University.
