Lee Scrivner

Adjunct Professorial Lecturer Department of Literature

Lee Scrivner writes on the literature, history, and culture of the Victorian and Modernist periods, as well as on contemporary issues. His book Becoming Insomniac: How Sleeplessness Alarmed Modernity (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2014) investigates a long-held notion that there is an essential incompatibility between sleep and modern technology. The book explores issues of insomnia and theories of sensation, attention, and the will in various texts (medical, psychological, literary) from the second half of the nineteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth century.
