Matthew Wilkens

Matthew Wilkens works on contemporary literary and cultural production with particular emphasis on the development of the novel after World War II. His recently completed book, Revolution: The Event in Modern Fiction, combines these interests with related theoretical issues including allegory, event, and encyclopedism in the 1950s and ‘60s. His articles on 20th-century literature have appeared in Contemporary Literature, New Literary History, and Theory@buffalo, among other outlets. His current research concerns very recent fiction and the evolution of late postmodernism in writers including David Foster Wallace, J.M. Coetzee, Rivka Galchen, and Uzodinma Iweala.
