Professor Andrea Pacor, PhD

Professor. Professor Pacor's research interests focus on modern and contemporary American literature and culture. He is interested in the intersection between subjectivity, national identity, and life-writing. His research explores how individuals frame their own subjectivity in relation to sovereign power, organized in a global system of nation states. In his work on the Japanese American Internment during World War II, he explores how political rejection/banishment affects the banished individual’s sense of self, and how its recovery depends on restoring allegiance with a state-structure willing to engage in a reciprocal relation.
