Rebecca Evans

Rebecca Evans is an assistant professor of English at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, where she researches and teaches American literature, speculative fiction, and environmental studies. Her book in progress explores how contemporary American fiction mediates between individual modes of experience and systemic models of environmental and structural violence and argues that genre experimentation allows writers to offer new understandings of agency, causality, history, and futurity. Her writing has appeared in American Literature, ASAP/Journal, Science Fiction Studies, Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities, Women’s Studies Quarterly, The Cambridge History of Science Fiction (2018), and An Ecotopian Lexicon (2019), as well as the Los Angeles Review of Books and Public Books. She holds a PhD in English from Duke University.
