Matthew Biberman's Biography

Member Info

Louisville, KY
Jun 2008

Currently a professor of English at the University of Louisville, I teach and publish on a wide range of literature, most often British Literature from Shakespeare to the Romantics along with contemporary Theory. I also work as a motorcycle mechanic, doing restoration work, most often on British motorcycles, especially Vincents.

Influences

As a theorist, my biggest influences are my teachers, Stanley Fish and Fred Jameson. As a writer of creative nonfiction, I would name Norman McLean, Robert Pirsig, Ernest Hemingway and Herman Melville.
