Susan Thananopavarn
Lecturing Fellow of Thompson Writing Program

I am interested in contemporary American literature, ethnic studies, and Asian American studies.  My book, LatinAsian Cartographies: History, Writing, and the National Imaginary (Rutgers UP, 2018), examines how Asian American and Latina/o literary texts can rewrite dominant narratives of U.S. history.  I teach Writing 101 courses in Asian American studies; “ethnofuturism,” or alternative speculative fiction by writers of color; and exploring human connection in the digital age.  Beginning in 2023, I will also teach a course in Asian American literature for Duke's program in Asian American and Diaspora Studies.
