Fallon Murphy (she/her) studies modernist literature of the United States, with particular attention to how this relates to film theory, material culture, women and gender studies, and performance theory. Prior to starting the PhD, Fallon worked in paper and photography conservation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum, and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona. This experience has given Fallon the framework for evaluating texts as physical objects and imagining texts as a part of a tangible archive. She has supplemented this interest by attending Rare Books School in Charlottesville, VA, the Image Permanence Institute in Rochester, NY.
