Dennis Hogan is a writer, academic, and organizer based in Philadelphia, PA. (more)

He is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Haverford College.

His research interests include literature and economics in nineteenth-century Central America and labor in the contemporary US university.

His research project “The Queen of Two Worlds: Crisis and Creation in the Central American Transit Zones, 1848-1914,” centers on the transit zones of Central America, two narrow strips of land comprising the interoceanic routes through Panama and Nicaragua. Focusing on writers from Panama, Nicaragua, Colombia, Britain, and the United States, the project argues that we can tell the story of nineteenth-century literature only when we recognize that the struggle for Central America was integral to the global project of imperial hegemony.

Dennis has also served as the RI Political Director of SEIU 1199NE, the Political Director of the Graduate Labor Organization-AFT Local 6516 and the Electoral Coordinator of Reclaim RI.
Recent work includes organizing the symposium "Universities and Democracy" at Haverford College, scholarly publications in ELH and Oxford Bibliographies in Victorian Literature, and popular writing in LARB, Lux, the Baffler, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Full Stop, and Teen Vogue.
