Siddharth Srikanth works on the Anglophone literatures of Africa, the Caribbean and South Asia, postcolonial studies, and narrative and novel theory. He is especially interested in how histories of empire and capitalism are reflected in and influenced by literary forms. These interests inform his current project Marginal Affinities: The Rhetoric and Geopolitics of Character 1958-2016, which examines the many geopolitical influences on character as a formal resource in the contemporary Anglophone novel.
