Molly Mann is finishing coursework as a Ph.D. student in English at St. John’s, where she has also completed a Master of Library Science (M.L.S.) degree. Her research interests include domestic fiction in the long nineteenth century, American modernism, women’s labor and its literary representations, food studies, and gender and race in the digital humanities. Her background in libraries and administration often finds her working at the intersection of archival studies, digital scholarship, and literary studies. Mann has presented work at the 2015 Silence in the Archives conference at Oxford University and the 2014 South Atlantic Modern Language Association conference. Most recently, her paper on Gertrude Stein, Djuna Barnes, and domestic technologies of the early twentieth century was accepted for the 2018 MLA Annual Convention. She was selected in 2016 as an MLA Connected Academics Fellow, working to explore new career pathways for humanists. Mann also serves as Assistant Dean in the Graduate Division of St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and teaches the undergraduate core course, Literature in a Global Context. Her B.A. in English summa cum laude is from Adelphi University.
