Nasser Mufti joins the Workshop in Transnational Cultural History to discuss a pre-circulated paper from his project "Victorianism in the Age of Decolonization."

The paper will be available approximately one week in advance. Please contact Anna Zalokostas or Viola Bao for access.

Nasser Mufti is Associate Professor of English at University of Illinois Chicago. His research and teaching focuses on nineteenth century British and postcolonial literature, as well as critical and political theory. He is especially interested in literary approaches to the study of nationalism. His first book, Civilizing War: Imperial Politics and the Poetics of National Rupture (Northwestern University Press, 2017) argues that narratives of civil war energized and animated nineteenth-century British imperialism and decolonization in the twentieth century. Civilizing War was winner of the 2019 Gustave O. Arlt Award, and runner-up for the 2020 Sonya Rudikoff First Book Prize. His work has appeared in The Journal of Narrative Theory, NOVEL, Nineteenth Century Literature, Victorian Literature and Culture, Victorian Studies, b2o: An Online Journal, Modernism/Modernity, and South Asian Review.
