About Ed Chamberlain

In my research, I build on the critical thought and methods of American studies and literary scholarship. My work considers contemporary portrayals of ethnicity, gender and sexuality in transnational literature and expression. Specifically, I study how texts and performances portray marginalized identities within the contexts of family and migration to the United States. My current research is a study of how several Latinx groups articulate their community engagement in autobiography, nonfiction, poetry and other life writing. This research considers the narratives of migrant people from the Americas, including Chile and Puerto Rico. I also am working on research that involves representations of nature, environmentalism and other social movements. In the past, I have taught classes that focus on American masculinity, nature writing and poetry, among others.
