Amanda Dennis earned her PhD from Berkeley, where she focused on Beckett’s relationship to 20th century French philosophy. Her current book project, Bodying Space: Beckett and the Question of Agency is a study of Merleau-Ponty and Beckett that traces theories of embodied agency in Beckett’s prose, theater and television work. She has published on modernism, Nietzsche and aesthetics, and an article on sensory poetics in Beckett’s Watt will appear this winter in The Journal of Modern Literature. She has taught in England, France, Spain and the US and is currently a visiting scholar at Columbia University in New York.
