Dr. Harriet Hustis
Dr. Harriet Hustis is Professor of English at TCNJ. Dr. Hustis earned her BA in Literary Studies & Classical Studies from Middlebury College, and her MA and PhD degrees in Comparative Literature from Brown University. Dr. Hustis specializes in reader response theory, disability theory, and gothic fiction. In particular, her research focuses on the representation and ethical significance of criminal or transgressive acts in literary fiction and non-fiction. Her scholarship is centered around two, interrelated, critical/theoretical approaches: 1) ethics and intentionality, and 2) reader-response theory. Many of her articles analyze works of Gothic fiction; thus, they focus on a specific genre. Others examine 19th- and 20th-century narratives of crime, guilt and ethical responsibility; thus, they focus on a theme directly related to the study of the Gothic. Dr. Hustis has published articles on a wide range of literary texts, including works by Melville, Poe, Tolstoy, Camus, Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley.
