Yunte Huang is Professor of English Literature at University of California, Santa Barbara. His books include Transpacific Displacement: Intertextual Travel in Twentieth-Century American Literature (2002);Transpacific Imaginations: History, Literature, Counterpoetics (2008); and Charlie Chan: The Untold Story of the Honorable Detective and His Rendezvous with American History (2010).
The Reorientations Interest Group is dedicated to rethinking historical doxa along global, transnational and transpacific axes. Rather than taking reorientational logic as mere theme or historical fact, we seek to employ it as an analytical methodology and powerful critical theory. The group is a collaborative effort between graduate students and professors in the English, History, Comparative Literature, American Culture, Anthropology, East Asian Studies, and Political Science Departments at the University of Michigan,as well as the Confucius Institute and the Center for Chinese Studies. For questions or to join the e-mail list, please contact Nan Da (nda[at]umich[dot]edu) or Alice Tsay (atsay[at]umich[dot]edu).
