Gnei Soraya Zarook gzaro001@ucr.eduMy interests lie at the intersection of language, trauma, and otherness. I’m currently interested in examining how South Asian American / Anglophone literature depicts life lived within and around trauma. Specifically, I look at how these depictions illustrate trauma as operating differently from its theorizations by traditional, Western-oriented trauma studies.
