Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Michael Rothberg’s first book, Traumatic Realism from 2000, approached issues of Holocaust representation in a refreshingly broad range of domains. Engaging with the work of Blanchot and Adorno as well as with popular culture, the book exemplified a bold articulation of critical theory, cultural studies, and Holocaust studies. In the last couple of years, his work has increasingly begun to connect these earlier concerns to postcolonial contexts and problems; the result of this research is his book Multidirectional Memory, which was published in the summer of 2009. Rothberg is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a fellow of the VLAC research cluster on the future of literary research on the memory of catastrophe (Brussels, 2009)
