Jennifer L. Fleissner is associate professor of English at Indiana University and the author of Women, Compulsion, Modernity: The Moment of American Naturalism as well as numerous essays in such venues as Critical Inquiry, ELH, American Literature, American Literary History, Novel, Studies in Romanticism, and The Cambridge History of the American Novel.  Her current project explores the role of the humanities in an age of neuroscience by returning to the roots of current debates over human interiority in the writing of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—specifically, through the relation of the novel to the idea of maladies of the will.
