Education

He completed a PhD at McGill University and a postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University, and is currently McFarlin Professor of Victorian Literature and Culture at the University of Tulsa. His research specialties include gender/sexuality studies, decadence/aestheticism, and eco-paganism.

Career

He was an early member of The Kootenay School of Writing in the 1980s, writing poetry and prose at the intersection of queer identity and LANGUAGE poetics. A runner-up in the Three-Day Novel Contest in 1989, Denisoff's debut novel Dog Years was published in 1991 by Arsenal Pulp Press while he was a Ph.D. student at McGill University. The novel, about a protagonist with HIV/AIDS, was a finalist for the Hugh Maclennan Prize in 1992 and the Norma Epstein Award.

In 1994, Denisoff published a poetry collection, Tender Agencies, and edited the anthology Queeries: An Anthology of Gay Male Prose. His second novel, The Winter Gardeners, was published in 2003, and in 2004 he published The Broadview Anthology of Victorian Short Stories.

His academic publications include Erin Mouré and Her Works (1995), Aestheticism and Sexual Parody: 1840-1940 (2001), and Sexual Visuality from Literature to film: 1850-1950 (2004). He is the editor of The Nineteenth-Century Child and Consumer Culture (2008) and a special issue of Victorian Review on Natural Environments (2011), as well as being a co-editor of Perennial Decay: On the Aesthetics and Politics of Decadence (1999) and the digital humanities project The Yellow Nineties Online (2012). He has also been a co-editor of the journals White Wall Review and Nineteenth Century Studies.
