Krupal Amin

PhD Student


Krupal Amin's research focuses on twentietth- and twenty-first-century U.S. multi-ethnic literature; her dissertation looks at Asian American and African American literatures in the post-Cold War and post-9/11 moments. She is interested in intersections of race and class in the production of knowledge, and her dissertation examines forms of education, including—but not limited to—forms of standardized education and alternative forms of education. Amin's broader interests include constructions of citizenship and race as they reflect changing definitions of U.S. nationalism.
