âArchipelagic Currents and Intersections in US-American Studiesâ Seminar led by BRIAN RUSSELL ROBERTS
Co-sponsored by Asian/Asian American Studies Institute, American Studies, and Department of English
BRIAN RUSSELL ROBERTS who grew up in Hawai`i, Indonesia and Tennessee, received his PhD in English from the University of Virginia in 2008. Associate Professor at Brigham Young University (UT), he regularly teaches courses for the English Department and American Studies Program. As a Fulbright Senior Scholar in 2015, he also taught and consulted for the American Studies Program at Universitas Sebelas Maret in Solo, Indonesia.
Dr. Roberts's research and teaching interests focus on US and more broadly American literatures and cultures. He has special interests in the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century, modernism/modernity, African American and black diaspora literatures and cultures, US-American intersections with archipelagic regions (e.g., the Caribbean, the Pacific, and Indonesia), and narratives of American Studies' development as a field.
Over the past few years, he has finished three book projects: a single-author book on African American writers as US diplomats, a co-written and translated book on Richard Wright's activities at the 1955 Bandung Conference, and an edited collection of essays on archipelagic American Studies. He is now writing a book tentatively titled "Archipelagic States of America: Approaching US Culture after the Continent.â
