Ravit Reichman is Associate Professor of English at Brown. Her research focuses on modernism, and particularly the intersections of literature, law, historical trauma, and psychoanalysis. She is the author of The Affective Life of Law: Legal Modernism and the Literary Imagination (2009), and is currently working on a study of property’s cultural and psychological life, Lost Properties of the Twentieth Century.
Her courses examine the stakes of language and literature in the context of war, ethics, justice, and community. They encourage students to ask what difference modernity makes in experiences such as bearing witness, forming identity, and interpreting history.
