Writing the City: Urban Visions & Literary Modernism

By Desmond Harding | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book is a result of the work I completed for my Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Southern California. I wish to thank Ronald Gottesman, the advisor to this project, who allowed me to move at my own pace and to roam wherever the idea of the city took me. I am indebted to his generosity of mind and heart, and am grateful for his abiding friendship. I was also fortunate to have the company of distinguished faculty members such as Thomas B. Gustafson, Anthony Kemp, Marshall Cohen, James Kincaid, and Joseph Dane, who supported me in the preparation and writing of this book. I am particularly grateful to Thomas Gustafson, who read and reread with the attention, criticism, and sympathy that comes with long fellowship.

During the years I worked on this project I was an Assistant Lecturer in the Writing Program at the University of Southern California. I wish to thank Betty Bamberg, John Holland, Jack Blum, and Stephen M. Byars for supporting me not only during my tenure as a graduate student, but also for continuing to provide me with the opportunity to enrich and deepen my current teaching practices as a Senior Lecturer. I owe thanks also to Ken Taylor and the Division of Student Affairs for enabling me to complete my graduate studies by working within the residential college system as a Residence Coordinator. I am also indebted to my colleagues in the Writing Program for providing me with both friendship and critical support: Joy Ross, William S. Feuer, Ryan J. Stark, Desmond Dewsnap, Phyllis J. Franzek, Nora Ashe, and Kathi Inman Berens.

I would like to thank the following for their friendship and support down the years: Ian D. MacKillop, Maurice Couve de Murville, David Saint, Kevin Starr, Peter Manning, James Forde, Annabelle Forde, Simon Bristowe, Matthew Bristowe, Eamon Kelly, Peter Bennett, William St. Clair, David E. Davis, and Edward Silva.
