Curriculum Vitae

Assistant Professor
Victorian Literature, Postcolonial Literature, Critical Theory


Nasser Mufti's research and teaching interests focus on Victorian literature, postcolonial literature and critical theory. His book manuscript, "Civil War by 'Other Means': Internal Strife in British Colonial Culture"  argues that the figure of civil war animated Victorian and anti-colonial nationalism, and includes chapters on Dickens's Bleak House, Kipling's Boer War writings, late-Victorian jurisprudence, B. R. Ambedkar's writings on the partition of India, and Nadine Gordimer's July's People. An article on Gordimer's late-apartheid writing is forthcoming in the Journal of Narrative Theory. His course offerings in the Spring of 2013 are, "Victorian Citizen-Victorian Subject," a graduate course on sovereignty, citizenship and empire in Victorian culture, and "Transitions?: Imperial Ends and Post-Colonial Beginnings," an undergraduate course on empire and postcolonial literature.
