This year’s conference, Virginia Woolf and the Natural World, highlighted the many aspects of nature that inspired Virginia Woolf’s life and writing. Rohman’s lecture was titled, “‘We Make Life’: Vibration, Aesthetics, and the Inhuman in The Waves.” She is also editing a book of conference papers to be published by Clemson University Digital Press.

Rohman’s research interests focus on British modernism, animal studies, and posthumanism. She teaches courses on English literature, literary study, and a VAST course Creature: Humans and Other Animals in Contemporary Culture.

She is the author of Stalking the Subject: Modernism and the Animal, which was released in 2009 by Columbia University Press. It investigates animality and humanism in the works of early 20th century authors such as Joseph Conrad, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, H. G. Wells, and Djuna Barnes. She has presented her research at national and international conferences and published in journals such as American Literature, Criticism, and Mosaic.
