Eddie Maloney is the Executive Director of The Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS) and a Professor of the practice of narrative literature and theory in the Department of English. He holds a Ph.D. from The Ohio State University in English Literature and a Master’s Degree from Syracuse University in English and Textual Studies.

As Executive Director of CNDLS, a research center on teaching, learning and technology, he helps to define Georgetown’s strategy to advance teaching and learning practices at the University, including developing innovative approaches to technology-enhanced learning, learning analytics, and fulfilling the Jesuit mission of teaching to the whole student.

As a professor in the Department of English, he teaches courses on modernism, postmodernism, critical and narrative theory. He has a particular interest in the works of James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett, Vladimir Nabokov, and Jorge Luis Borges, and he has published on Joyce and others, as well as on issues related to narrative theory, film studies, and hypertext fiction. He has served as the Electronic Resources Editor for the Heath Anthology of American Literature, and he is currently working on two book-length projects—one, Footnotes in Fiction, on the use of artificial paratexts in fictional narratives, and the other, Narrative Pedagogy, on the role of narrative in teaching and learning.
