English: Visiting Assistant Professor of English

Sean Weidman is a teacher, writer, and scholar who holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in English from the Pennsylvania State University.

A literary theorist and cultural critic, Sean primarily studies Anglo-modernism, 20th-century cultural history, and the digital humanities. Some of his essays have appeared in English Literary History, Modernism/modernity, and Journal of Modern Literature, and you can find his digital research in venues like Digital Humanities Quarterly and Digital Scholarship in the Humanities. His current book project—tentatively, Hospitalities: Modernist Culture and the Politics of Welcoming—explores hospitality’s history and use in early 20th-century politics and modernist literary culture.

At Lycoming, Sean teaches Composition (ENGL 106), but he’s taught across the gamut of English studies, including surveys in modern/contemporary fiction, American ideology and culture, and professional writing. He’s fond of autumn rain, strong coffee, and cozy sweaters.
