Amanda M. Dennis earned her PhD in Rhetoric from the University of California, Berkeley, where she focused on the relationship between twentieth-century French philosophy and the work of Samuel Beckett. She is currently revising her dissertation into a book, “Bodying Space”, which emphasizes the importance of the body to postwar French thought and to Beckett’s prose, theater and television work. She has taught courses on modernist literature, ethics and subjectivity in England, France and the US.
