Claudia Sadowski-Smith


Associate Professor





My areas of specialization include twentieth and twenty-first U.S. literatures, fiction of the U.S. Southwest, inter-American studies, and immigration studies. I am the author of Border Fictions: Globalization, Empire, and Writing at the Boundaries of the United States (U. of Virginia Press, 2008), which explores cultural productions about the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico in the context of inter-American studies and theories of globalization. I am also the editor of Globalization on the Line: Culture, Capital, and Citizenship at U.S. Borders (Palgrave, 2002) and of a 2011 special issue of Comparative American studies on comparative border studies. In addiiton, I have published several essays on cross-ethnic approaches to immigration, transnational adoption, border theory, literatures of the U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada borders, and on the internationalization of American studies. I am currently at work on another project on comparative immigration and transnational adoption to the Americas.
