William Scott’s research and teaching focus on American Literature, African American Literature, poetry/poetics, and linguistics (generative syntax/phonology; minimalist program; biolinguistics).

Research and Publications

His first book, Troublemakers: Power, Representation, and the Fiction of the Mass Worker, was published by Rutgers University Press in 2012. He is currently working on two projects: a study of various modes of articulation—including the innovative forms of linguistic experimentation that attend these—in the poetic work of Evie Shockley, entitled Braided Language: The Poetry of Evie Shockley, as well as a study of John Cheever's fiction.
