Stephanie Insley Hershinow (Baruch College, English) is an Associate Professor of English, specializing in eighteenth-century British literature, the history and theory of the novel, experimental literature, and literary theory. She completed her PhD at Johns Hopkins and, before coming to Baruch, held a postdoc at Rutgers. She has received research fellowships from the Rotary Foundation and the Fulbright Program. Prof. Hershinow’s book, Born Yesterday: Inexperience and the Early Realist Novel, asks why the eighteenth-century novel is preoccupied with naïveté—with adolescent characters that don’t grow, mature, or develop in predictable ways. She’s also interested more broadly in questions of literary form, and especially in the weird shapes and configurations the novel took before it settled into the customs we recognize today. She has essays out or forthcoming from NovelThe Eighteenth-Century: Theory and Interpretation, and Romantic Circles.
