Our Ph.D. in Asian Literatures, Cultures and Media (ALCM) offers training in Asian texts, film, and critical theory. Our faculty include scholars in various disciplines across the Humanities. In this program, students pursue extensive coursework in a particular Asian literary or cultural tradition (including emergent, non-canonical cultural forms) while addressing political, theoretical, and methodological concerns. We are open to comparative work as well as new questions concerning discursive constructions of Asia. Faculty interests include poetic and theatrical traditions, film studies, feminist thought and postcolonial theory.
