Mark Celeste

Instructor and Teaching Fellow

Mark Celeste

Instructor and Teaching Fellow

Mark Celeste received his PhD in English from Rice in May 2019. He specializes in British literature of the long nineteenth century, and his research focuses on maritime fiction, broadly conceived. His interest in oceanic circulations and exchanges shapes his current FWIS courses, both of which take up questions of connectivity and survival in a globalized world. He has also taught courses on environmental studies, feminist theory, and postcolonialism. Mark's work has appeared in Victorian Review, The Gaskell Journal, and The Chronicle of Higher Education. In teaching writing, he is particularly interested in style -- the subjective choices of form, tone, and rhythm that fundamentally affect the authority, poise, and efficacy of a written work.
