Brian A Bremen
Brian Bremen specializes in American Literature, Modernism, as well as the Medical and Digital Humanities, writers of the Harlem Renaissance and Literary Theory. He is currently at work on a book that examines the ways in which contemporaneous religious and scientific thought interacted in the formation of Modern literature, tentatively called What Was Modernism (and Does It Still Matter)?
An avid surfer of the Internet since 1992, Bremen is presently archiving graphic, audio, and video material to aid in the instruction of large lecture sections of E316K: Masterworks in American Literature, and experimenting with ways in which to incorporate web-based instruction in large lecture classes.
In 2016-17, Bremen will co-direct the Texas Institute on Textual and Literary Studies, sponsored by the English Department. The Institute (TILTS) will focus on Health, Medicine, and the Humanities, and it coincides with the first entering class at the Dell Medical School. The Institute will feature lectures and panels on Narrative Medicine, the uses of the Arts in medical education, Disabilities Studies, Race and Medicine, and other topics.
