Thomas Loebel is an Associate Professor and former Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of English at York University.
Author of The Letter and the Spirit: Justice, Politics, Theology (2005), he is a specialist in 19th and 20th century American literature and literary theory.
His current research involves a multidisciplinary approach to language as a performance art, moving from a linguistic understanding of transformational-generative grammar and performative utterance to type treatment, orthographics and dialectology. Focusing on late 19th-century and early-modernist American cultural production, the work explores prose rhythmics, temporal measures of speech, and the sound-shape of expression.
