Rita Felski is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of English at the University of Virginia.  Her current research centres on questions of method and interpretation. Her recent manifesto "The Uses of Literature" is a neo-phenomenological investigation of aesthetic experiences such as recognition, enchantment, and shock. Her work in progress is a book on critique and the hermeneutics of suspicion. She also has longstanding interests in feminist theory, modernity and postmodernity, genre (especially tragedy), and cultural studies.
