Fred Burwick Full Profile

Fred Burwick

After completing his doctoral studies in English Literature at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) in 1965, Frederick Burwick returned to his native Los Angeles to take a teaching position at UCLA. Although he has since continued as a member of the UCLA faculty, he has enjoyed several visiting positions in Germany at the universities of Würzburg, Siegen, Göttingen, and Bamberg. At Göttingen he spent two years (1992-1994) as the Director of the UC Education Abroad Program. He has also lectured at the universities of Cologne, Heidelberg, Leipzig, and Munich in Germany as well as Oxford and Cambridge in England.

With an interdisciplinary approach to literature, Dr. Burwick developed his courses at UCLA to explore the interactions of literature with art, science, music, and theater. Author and editor of thirty books, one hundred forty articles, and numerous reviews, his research is dedicated to problems of perception, illusion, and delusion in literary representation and theatrical performance. He has been named Distinguished Scholar by both the British Academy (1992) and the Keats-Shelley Association (1998). His book on Poetic Madness and the Romantic Imagination (Penn State, 1996) won the Outstanding Book of the Year Award of the American Conference on Romanticism. He is also recipient of the Dickson Emeritus Award (2009) for outstanding achievement, and has been awarded the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Emeritus Fellowship (2011-2012).
