Cliff Marks does research on Comics and Graphic Novels, British and American Romanticism, Victorian literature, the Holocaust, the Bible as literature, and film. He is interested in the ethical dimensions of literature and the relationship between philosophy and literary theory. Most recently he has begun to study eco-criticism. Outside of work, Cliff has worked closely with Laramie’s Jewish community since arriving in Wyoming in 1989 and has been a board member of the Laramie Film Society for over a decade. He enjoys long walks with his affable mutts Albert and Samantha, as well as exercise, cooking, and sports.
