Personal profile

Biography

Eric Strand has a PhD in English from the University of California, Irvine, and joined the Department of English at Lingnan University in fall 2016. Before coming to Hong Kong he taught for several years at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. He has published on topics ranging from Lord Byron’s poetry to the post-independence Indian English novel in Studies in Romanticism, Twentieth-Century Literature, and ELH (https://ln.academia.edu/EricStrand). His research and teaching focuses on 20th-century American literature and also involves American Studies due to an interest in central symbols such as the “frontier,” a concept that becomes globalized after 1945. His book manuscript, “White Flight: Travel Narratives, Globalization, and the American Middle Class,” analyzes not only official practitioners of the travel genre such as James Michener and Paul Theroux, but also writers such as Elizabeth Bishop, William S. Burroughs and Richard Wright.
