Bio/Research

David Rampton is a professor of English at the University of Ottawa. His research interests include twentieth-century American and comparative literature. He has written books on the works of Vladimir Nabokov and William Faulkner and edited a number of anthologies. The impulse behind his scholarship is both conservative and exploratory: it seeks to convey the importance of what are after all extraordinary products of the human imagination, and to find out more about what makes these works good things in themselves.

As a teacher, Professor Rampton is similarly interested in kindling students’ enthusiasm for canonical works of literature. He also seeks to help them develop the linguistic and analytic skills required for writing about literature and about issues raised therein that are linked to those in related disciplines. He has performed a range of administrative duties in the Faculty of Arts, including serving as Chair of the Department of English from 2002 to 2007.
