ZILCOSKY, John

John Zilcosky is Chair, Associate Professor of German and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. He teaches and writes about German and European literature and culture from 1750 to the present—concentrating on modernism, exoticism, theories of travel and tourism, postcolonialism, psychoanalysis, popular culture, and the intersections of aesthetics and politics. His first book, Kafka’s Travels: Exoticism, Colonialism, and the Traffic of Writing (New York: Palgrave, 2003), examines Franz Kafka’s surprising love of adventure literature and argues that this biographical eccentricity forces us to reconsider his oeuvre.
