Brooke Jamieson Stanley
Current position: Visiting Assistant Professor of Literature, Stockton University
Research and teaching interests:
I work at the hinge of postcolonial studies and environmental humanities, focusing on twentieth-century and contemporary literature. My interests include globalization, food studies, indigeneity, gender and sexuality, and theory of the novel. My current research examines the politics of food in contemporary environmental fiction from South Africa, South Asia, and the US.
