Michael Sanders

Postdoctoral Fellow

Michael J. Sanders is broadly interested in how U.S. Supreme Court cases that highlight race and ethnicity have influenced American Literature. His work examines the philosophical and political frameworks BIPOC writers use to rethink, outwit and outlast the legal and logical paradoxes in and beyond the racism of the American legal system. An interdisciplinary scholar, Sanders also continues to emphasize race and ethnicity in his work in the fields of non-Western intellectual history, banned books, queer literature, speculative literature and religious studies.
