Ezra Dan Feldman

I am a Ph.D. student in English at Cornell University and winner of the 2015 Patricia Bibby First Book Award for Habitat of Stones, forthcoming from Tebot Bach (2016).

My dissertation, “Flat Narratology: Surface, Depth, and Speculation in Contemporary Metafiction,” argues for the narrative significance of such objects as phrases, frames, and events on a par with character, setting, and plot. My research responds to recent work in the social sciences and philosophy on the agency of nonhuman objects.

Research and teaching interests include:

  1. Narrative Studies
  2. Character
  3. Creative and Expository Writing
  4. Science Studies
  5. Speculative Realism
  6. Speculative Fiction

My poems have appeared in Hayden’s Ferry Review, Gertrude, Narrative Magazine, Third Wednesday, and Nasty Magazine. You also find them online at:
