Research Interests & Projects

Anderson Araujo’s published research engages the intersections of aesthetics and politics in Transatlantic Modernism, in articles on avant-garde movements and modernist writers, including Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, and Richard Aldington. His first book, A Companion to Ezra Pound’s Guide to Kulchur (Clemson University Press and Liverpool University Press, 2018), offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary study of this critical text in Pound’s oeuvre and biography. He is currently writing a book on modernist cultural politics and the Spanish Civil War.

Dr. Araujo has a joint appointment to teach Modernist literature, Twentieth-Century British and Irish literature, and World Literature in the Department of English and Cultural Studies and the Department of Languages and World Literatures. A recipient of the 2014 FCCS Teaching Innovation Award, he encourages active, dialogical participation in the classroom. He views teaching and research as a seamless conversation to advance intercultural awareness, cross intellectual and disciplinary boundaries, and promote creativity in language and media use.
