Adam Szetela


I am a Ph.D. student in the English department at Cornell University. Before coming to Cornell, I was a visiting fellow in the history department at Harvard University and an affiliate of the Program on the Study of Capitalism. My work looks at capitalism, culture, and moral politics in the United States.

Currently, I am working on a project that utilizes interviews and content analysis to understand the intersections of contemporary literature and social media. In large part, this project focuses on public criticism of published and unpublished novels.

In the past, my scholarship, op-eds, and creative writing have been published by The Journal of American CultureThe Journal of Popular CultureThe Nation, The Progressive, Vice, SalonJacobin, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Rattle, and elsewhere.

Off campus, I am a writing mentor in PEN America's Prison Writing Program.
