Susan Thananopavarn
Lecturing Fellow of Thompson Writing Program

I am interested in contemporary American literature, ethnic studies, Asian American studies, and Latina/o studies.  My forthcoming book, LatinAsian Cartographies: History, Writing, and the National Imaginaryexamines how Asian American and Latina/o literature can rewrite dominant narratives of U.S. history. My next project will explore what I call “ethnofuturism,” or alternative speculative fiction by writers of color.  Other areas of interest include the medical humanities, women’s and gender studies, and literature and the environment.
