Megan Quigley is an Associate Professor of English at Villanova University whose focus is British and Irish Modernism.  Her book, Modernist Fiction and Vagueness: Philosophy, Form, and Language (Cambridge University Press, 2015) explores the intertwined history of 20th-century British fiction and philosophy. It was described as “deeply engaging… persuasive… an illuminating reassessment” by David James in the TLS.  Her work has appeared in The Cambridge Companion to European Modernism, the James Joyce Quarterly, The Journal of the T.S. Eliot Society, Modernism / modernity, and Philosophy and Literature

She is a past recipient of both a Harry Ransom Center Fellowship at the University of Texas at Austin and the Huntington Library in Pasadena. In both 2013 and 2016 she was a lecturer at the T. S. Eliot International Summer School in London. Her classes at Villanova focus on literary modernism, 20th-century British and Irish Fiction, and the relationship between philosophy and fiction. She is at work on two new projects: one on Wittgenstein’s Tractatus and Virginia Woolf’s “The Voyage Out”; and another on T. S. Eliot and the novel.
