Anwesha Kundu

Graduate Student, English and American Literature

Anwesha Kundu’s work focuses on 20th-century literature from the British empire and questions of (post)colonial affect. Her dissertation examines anglophilia as a mode of identity formation in autobiographical works from South Asia and the Caribbean. She writes about how ambivalent or conservative affects can be mobilized in unexpected ways within anticolonial movements. As an interdisciplinary scholar with an interest pedagogy, she has taught in different academic contexts including English Literature, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and English as a Second Language.
