S. Pearl Brilmyer is Assistant Professor of English at The University of Oregon and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry in Berlin, Germany. Her work lies at the intersection of the history of philosophy, science, and literature.
Pearl has recently published in PMLA and Representations and is currently completing an experimental, excerpted edition of the South African writer Olive Schreiner’s 1926 novel, From Man to Man; or Perhaps Only (with design by Minna Sakaria).
Her research interests include: problems of description and characterization in the nineteenth-century English novel, German theories of will and drive (Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Wundt), and questions of materiality and temporality in feminist and queer theory.
