Biography

Eric Sandberg received his PhD in literature from the University of Edinburgh in 2010, and since then has taught at universities in Turkey, Japan, Finland and Hong Kong. While he teaches across the literature curriculum, he is a specialist in British Modernism (particularly Virginia Woolf) and the modern and contemporary novel. His research interests range from modernism to the twenty-first century novel. His monograph on Virginia Woolf was published in 2014, and he co-edited Adaptations, Awards Cutlure, and the Value of Prestige (Palgrave, 2017) with Colleen Kennedy-Karpat. He is currently editing a volume on fictional detectives, and is working on a literary companion to the work of Dorothy L. Sayers. He is also the lead researcher on an NOS-HS funded project on nostalgia in contemporary culture.
