Glenn Jellenik (Ph.D., U. of South Carolina) grew up on Long Island, where he dreamt of becoming the shortstop for the NY Mets. While that never happened, he has achieved his plan-B dream of being an Associate Professor of English at UCA. Jellenik’s teaching and research interests include 18th- & 19th-century British literature, film, and adaptation. Specifically, he focuses on the intersections between genres and media, as well as between culture and society (or, say, literature and identity). His most recent classes are “Jane on the Brain,” an author study of Jane Austen, and a section of Film and Literature centered in what it means to be human. His latest publication, “An Alternate Spirit of the Age: Rethinking Romanticism, Originality, and Adaptation” (Keats-Shelley Journal, Summer 2020) attempts to reposition the Romantic period as an age of adaptation. He has also recently published essays on adaptation with Oxford, Routledge, and Palgrave Presses, and he has co-edited a book, 10 Years After Katrina, with UCA colleague Dr. Mary Ruth Marotte.
