SPEAKER: Christina Milletti

Christina Milletti’s fiction has appeared in several journals and anthologies, such as The Alaska Review, The Chicago Review, and The Greensboro Review, as well as Harcourt’s Best New American Voices, and Scribner's Best of the Fiction Workshops. Recently, novelist Paul West devoted a chapter to her fiction in his book Master Class. She has written a collection of short stories, The Religious, and is now at work on a novel, Room in the Hotel America. Her dissertation, "Innovative Ends: Gender and the Poetics of Transformation in Women's Experimental Fiction," examines the intersections of gender, performance, and speech act theory in the work of twentieth-century women writers. Her teaching interests include creative writing (fiction), theories of writing, hypertext and digital studies, twentieth-century fiction, women's literature, feminist theory, and the history of the novel. She is the founder of and currently a contributing editor to BathHouse magazine, an on-line journal of cross-genre and interdisciplinary writing, as well as an associate editor of the American Book Review.
