Harris Feinsod is a literary and cultural historian of the United States, Latin America, and the Atlantic world. His teaching and research emphasize poetry and poetics, modernism and the avant-garde in Europe and the Americas, multiethnic US literature, and transnational studies (especially hemispheric and oceanic approaches). His first book, The Poetry of the Americas: From Good Neighbors to Countercultures offers a detailed literary history of relations among poets in the US and Latin America across the mid-twentieth century. Fellowships at the Stanford Humanities Center, the Harry Ransom Center, and the University of Pittsburgh Humanities Center supported the research and writing of this book.
