Research Interests

Before coming to Wooster, Dyne taught at Rutgers University, the University of California, Berkeley, and New York University. He specializes in the nineteenth-century novel, the poetics of realism, and narrative ethics, and is working on a project that tracks the firearm as a narrative device in the Russian novel.
