Omri Moses is Associate Professor of English at Concordia University in Montreal, where he teaches courses on literary modernism as well as the scientific and medical humanities. He is the author of Out of Character: Modernism, Vitalism, Psychic Life (Stanford University Press, 2014) and is completing a new book project, tentatively called The Open Mind, which examines theories of extended cognition to understand better how we read fiction and poetry, while also turning to literature to test these new neurobiological theories. He is a current recipient of a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Development Grant from the Canadian government.
