Alison J Klein
Lecturer of Thompson Writing Program
I am a Lecturer in International Writing at Duke University, where I am currently teaching a class on podcasts. I earned my Ph.D. in English literature from the CUNY Graduate Center. My book, The Seductive Hierarchies of Empire, published in 2018 by Palgrave Macmillan, is an exploration of gender roles in the literature of Caribbean indenture. My work has been published in the anthology Indo-Caribbean Feminisms and the journals Anthurium, South Asian Review, and The Journal of Commonwealth Literatures.
