Hello, World! My name is Eric Loy, and I'm currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of English at the University of Rochester. At UR, I have taught classes in the Department of English, the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program, and for Digital Media Studies. I currently serve as Project Coordinator for the William Blake Archive. Formerly, I was a Fellow in the Andrew W. Mellon Graduate Program in the Digital Humanities. For the upcoming academic year, I am a Dudley Doust Writing Associate Fellow.

Motivated by questions of form and format in contemporary literature, I am currently preparing a dissertation with the working title Material Worlds: Narrative and Design in Contemporary Fiction, Advisors Jeffrey Tucker and Morris Eaves.

Recent writing includes two reviews, appearing in ASAP/J and Textual Cultures.

For a list of recent and upcoming presentations, please visit the Talks page.

I have previously taught courses in English Composition at Creighton University, where I also served as a research assistant for The Complete Letters of Henry James (Eds. Greg W. Zacharias and Michael Anesko). For current and recent courses taught at the University of Rochester, please visit the Teaching page.

I am, in fact, a curler.
