Ella Ophir specializes in British and American modernism. Her published essays have addressed questions of cultural politics, cultural authority, and the theory of the novel. She is currently studying modernist conceptions of the relationship between language and subjectivity, in part by examining representations of inarticulacy in fiction. The project aims to elucidate both the philosophical assumptions and the social stakes involved in all estimations of linguistic power and limitation.
