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 Latino/a 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.
