Noah Rawlings joined Princeton's Department of French & Italian in 2021 after completing a B.A. in Comparative Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill, where he wrote an undergraduate thesis on the writer and translator Lydia Davis. Noah focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction and philosophy, and he is particularly interested in anthropological, historicist, and ecocritical approaches to literature. Additional interests include translation, aesthetics, and the relations between literature and religious culture.
Noah's reporting, art criticism, and creative writing have appeared in Art Papers, Burnaway, Joyland, and elsewhere; he also copy-edits for the Los Angeles Review of Books. His first translation — a book on Deleuze, Peirce, and Bergson, co-translated with Carolina Iribarren — is forthcoming.
