Guy Reynolds,
After an early career in the UK (graduate studies at Cambridge; teaching at the University of Kent), Guy Reynolds came to UNL as a Professor in 2003.

His recent work has concentrated on Willa Cather, and also on the international and transatlantic dimensions of post-war US writing. Professor Reynolds has also been increasingly interested in representations of England and Englishness in contemporary fiction, and is about to begin research in that field. Apostles of Modernity: American Writers in the Age of Development (2008) focuses on fiction and reportage produced by Americans in a decolonized and ‘post-European’ world. He is completing a study of Willa Cather, Modernism and the ways early twentieth-century American culture represented the body – Sensing Willa Cather: the Writer and the Body in Transition.

A number of his essays and lectures, on Cather and other Americans, are available online via the ‘Selected Works’ electronic press.

Sponsored by CAS Inquire—For Students Who Want to Delve Deeper. The CAS Inquire program builds around a college-wide series of public lectures centering on a new theme each year.

The lecture series will serve as a touchstone for the college—giving students, staff, and faculty a focal point and shared topic for conversations and further inquiry.
