Matthew M. Pincus, literary + cultural studies
MFA, current PhD candidate
University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Matthew M. Pincus is an ABD status PhD fellow at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He specializes in modernist and mid-century American literature and cultural studies.
Matthew is on the 2018-2019 academic job market. He needed a website to act as a dynamic CV and portfolio easily accessible by a search committee. His website highlights speaking engagements, publications, a book manuscript abstract, and a section on teaching.
He’s also my fiance and the main inspiration for my business. He’s terrible at tech. No really. He didn’t have a social media or online presence. And he wanted an academic job in this market!
Don’t get me wrong, he’s awesome. But he wasn’t doing everything he could to put himself out there. Now, he’s enjoying the rewards like publication and speaking offers, better communication with students.
