Winter meeting of the NYNJ Modernism Seminar


From: Friday, February 07, 2020, 12:00pm

To: Friday, February 07, 2020, 02:00pm

Professor Kinohi Nishikawa, Princeton University 

Kinohi Nishikawa specializes in twentieth-century African American literature, book history, and popular culture. He earned his A.B. in English from Dartmouth College and his Ph.D. in Literature from Duke University.  Nishikawa’s first book, Street Players: Black Pulp Fiction and the Making of a Literary Underground, was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2018. His major work in progress is Black Paratext, a study of how book design has influenced the production and reception of African American literature from World War II to the present. Nishikawa has published widely on modern African American print culture, with a particular emphasis on newspapers, magazines, and independent publishers. 


The NYNJ Modernism Seminar, cosponsored by the Modernism and Globalization Research Group at Rutgers and the Department of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia, has been meeting twice annually since 2011 to discuss work-in-progress by leading scholars in the fields of 20c and 21c literary studies.  Professor Nishikawa's and Professor Friedman's papers will be available on the NYNJMS Sakai site about two weeks before each meeting.  Everyone is welcome!  If you would like to be added to the site, please write to Rebecca Walkowitz (This email address is being protected from spambots.
