Trans Area Literature Collective

The Trans Area Literature Collective consists of scholars of twentieth- and twenty-first-century literatures across media, with special interests in global, interdisciplinary, and multilingual perspectives. Our work draws on area-studies models to expand beyond comparative approaches to literary studies. We challenge the power inequities inherent in traditional practices of comparison, focusing on histories of colonialism and imperialism, the politics of minority and indigenous cultures, and questions of race and gender. These research commitments also inform our pedagogy in the undergraduate and graduate classroom.
