MALCOLM K. READ
Frank Melville, Jr. Memorial Library N3022, (631) 632-6940
Born in Derby, England, Malcolm Read graduated from the University of Bristol in 1967. Between 1968 and 1980, he was Assistant Professor in Spanish at the University College of Wales, Aberystweyth. He was Visiting Professor in New Zealand in 1977-78, whither he returned on a permanent basis in 1980. He remained in New Zealand until 1993, except for one year spent as a Visiting Professor at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. Since 1993, he has taught at the University at Stony Brook.
Much of his early research was in linguistics, notably the history of the discipline, a subject in which he continues to maintain an active interest. Later, he turned to literary theory, and, more specifically, to psychoanalysis and Marxism, which he has combined in the form of a psychoanalytic Marxism. Recently, his work has focused on the construction of subjectivity in the pre- and early-modern periods and, more broadly, upon the epistemological and ontological dimensions of the human sciences. He has published numerous books and articles relating to most areas of Peninsular studies--Medieval, Golden Age, Enlightenment, and Modern--and also of Latin American studies.
