Kevin Tunnicliffe

Kevin Tunnicliffe is a PhD Candidate at the University of Victoria, Canada. His dissertation is entitled “Anaesthetic Narrative Form in Modernist Fiction,” and brings together theories of affect, neo-formalism, and neuroscience to challenge the canonical reading of high modernism that privileges aesthetics of shock and reinvigoration; instead, Kevin examines the widespread, if underappreciated, experience of insensitivity as a consequence of—perhaps the only rational response to—the shocks of modernity. Kevin writes for the Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism.
