Dr. Ubaraj Katawal
Associate Professor of English
Ubaraj Katawal received his PhD from Binghampton University in 2012. His areas of interest are contemporary British and Anglophone literatures, including South Asian literature. He is also interested in ethnic American literature. His work has appeared in boundary 2, Postcolonial Text, and Interdisciplinary Literary Studies. He has presented at the Modern Language Association (MLA) conferences, American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) conferences, South Asian Literary Association (SALA), and Multi-ethnic Literatures of the United States (MELUS) conferences, among others. In his current book project, Dr. Katawal examines postcolonial violence through contemporary South Asian fiction. He was also the recipient of a Faculty Seed Grant in 2014. His teaching interests include contemporary literature, postcolonial literature, and multicultural literatures. He believes that a teacher “should not foist his bias on students, but objectivity should not create the impression that value judgements are unimportant” (Louise M. Rosenblatt).
