Nidesh Lawtoo is Visiting Scholar in the Humanities Center at Johns Hopkins University with a research fellowship granted by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
“Nidesh Lawtoo is a rising figure in Conrad studies, and Conrad’s Shadow adds significantly to his reputation. Lawtoo connects the Conradian idea of homo duplex and doubling in his works to mimetic theory and in the process provides a welcome return to a textual-based literary analysis in which Lawtoo gives us new, challenging, and insightful readings of Conrad’s works. Conrad’s Shadow will likely prove to be one of the most innovative books on Conrad to appear in some time. “
