About Edward Chamberlain

In my research, I build on the critical thought and methods of American studies and cultural studies scholarship. My work considers contemporary portrayals of ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in transnational cultures, expression, and writing. Specifically, I study how culture including texts and performances portray 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 film, 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, comparative arts, nature writing, and poetry, among others.
