Dr. Romy Rajan is a Visiting Assistant Professor working with literatures of the Global South, particularly from East Africa and South Asia. His research looks at postcolonial responses to contemporary forms of globalization and the ways in which such forms exacerbate existing vulnerabilities. His work stands at the intersection of postcolonial studies and critical finance studies, and studies the utopian possibilities embedded in work by contemporary postcolonial novelists. His essays have appeared in the journals, Ariel and Mediations, and he has presented in multiple national and regional conferences. Apart from courses engaging these core research areas, Romy also teaches introductory courses to literature and composition.
