Travis Landry joined Kenyon College in 2008 after earning a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature (with degree certification in Theory and Criticism) at the University of Washington. His interdisciplinary work explores the reciprocity between literature and science, and he has a forthcoming book entitled Subversive Seduction: Darwin, Sexual Selection, and the Spanish Novel (University of Washington Press, 2013.) Related research interests include gender studies, realism, world literature, and literary history. His latest project centers on the legacy of Islam in Spanish literature since the Enlightenment. In 1997, he received a B.A. with Honors in Comparative Literature from Brown University and, in the four years following, taught Spanish at a secondary school in Houston, Texas. He is trained in multiple national traditions and periods, as well as second-language acquisition, and teaches both literature and languages courses.
