Mary Poovey is the Samuel Rudin University Professor in the Humanities and a professor of English at New York University. Her most recent book, Genres of the Credit Economy (2008), now seems like the second book of what will be a trilogy of historical treatments of the cultural place of credit and finance. The first of this series is A History of the Modern Fact (1998); the third is the monograph she is currently writing with Kevin Brine, which is tentatively titled “The Modern Way of Knowing: A History of the Modern Financial Model."
