Marcos Antonio Norris currently teaches classes on the problematics of human rights discourse, the generic developments of the short story over the last 200 years, and Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone as a beacon of mid-century television. Marcos was awarded distinction for his dissertation, Hemingway, Sartre, and Secularization: Finding Religion Without God, at Loyola University Chicago, where he received a PhD in English in 2021. Marcos is editor of Agamben and the Existentialists (2021) with Edinburgh University Press, and the author of more than a dozen peer-reviewed articles, most recently including “The Failed Atheism of Jean-Paul Sartre” with The Heythrop Journal, “Gender Pronoun Use in the University Classroom: A Posthumanist Perspective” with Transformation in Higher Education, “Bibliographical Approaches to D.H. Lawrence’s ‘Odour of Chrysanthemums'” with Textual Cultures, and “‘Her voice is full of money’: Mechanical Reproduction and a Metaphysics of Substance in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby” with English Studies. His research focuses on the intersections among contemporary continental thought, existentialism, and 20th & 21st century literature, cinema, and other digital media. Marcos hopes to teach his students crisp, lucid writing, where clarity, logical organization, and carefully thought-out conclusions reign supreme. He is excited to join an amazing cohort at the School of Writing, Literature, and Film.
