USA
PhD in German Studies and Comparative Literature
Columbia University
Ross Shields is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Leibniz Center for Literary and Cultural Research, Berlin. His current project argues that Goethe’s morphology develops through a critical reading of Kant’s Critique of Judgment, and that the concept of the “nexus” developed through this reading anticipates the aesthetic program of early twentieth century modernism. He received his PhD in German Studies and Comparative Literature from Columbia University in 2019. His research interests include literary modernism, aesthetics, pictorial and musical theories of form, literary theory, the philosophy of language, and the history of science.
