Literature, Language, and Culture


About

Activities in this cluster examine diverse literatures, languages, genres, time periods, geographies, and cultures. Working groups take up various topics, from examining the politics of writing, poetics, and translation, to examining a particular form/genre, to unpacking Eurocentric frameworks and contesting settler-colonial mindsets. This cluster, originally formed around collaborations in early modern studies, 18th-Century studies, Victorian studies, and the study of contemporary literatures, languages, and cultures, now includes many additional fields, including Ethnic studies, Latinx/Latin-American studies, Afro-Caribbean studies, Jewish studies, South Asian studies, Asian and Asian American studies, Native American and Indigenous studies, African American studies, Middle Eastern studies, (de)carceral studies, women’s/gender studies, disability studies, queer studies, labor studies, restorative justice studies, and more.
