Jacques Khalip Associate Professor of English

Jacques Khalip is the author of Anonymous Life: Romanticism and Dispossession (Stanford University Press, 2009), which examines the concept of romantic anonymity as a way of being-in-the-world that resists the Enlightenment emphasis on transparency, self-disclosure, and emotional autonomy. He is also the co-editor of Constellations of a Contemporary Romanticism (New York: Fordham University Press, 2016) and Releasing the Image: From Literature to New Media (Stanford University Press, 2011). His essays are published in Arizona Quarterly, Criticism, differences, ELH, European Romantic Review, Forum Italicum, New Centennial Review, Raritan, and Romantic Circles Praxis.
