Thomas P. Carroll is a PhD student in Literary Studies with the Department of English. His academic interests are centered on conceptions of Self and the roles that temporality, certainty, and desire play in these notions. These interests also include a variety of related ideas: psychoanalytic theory, ontology, phenomenology, counterfactuals, truth, narrative, and memory.

His literary focus is on representations of Self; instances of awakening, disillusionment, or resistance; and the English Renaissance.

As an Instructor, he has taught more than 75 sections of First Year English and is currently in his fourth year with Lower Division Studies at Georgia State University.
