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 (2018), offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary study of this critical text in Pound’s oeuvre and biography. It received a High Commendation Award from the Ezra Pound Society. His latest book, written entirely in Spanish, was published in Madrid in 2021. Estetas fascistas y antifascistas: La vanguardia española, el modernismo americano y la política del poder examines the radical politics of the Spanish and Anglo-American avant-garde during the rise of fascism in Europe. He is currently writing a monograph (in English) 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, the latter of which he is the current Head (2019-2024). 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.
