Dr. Nevena Stojanovic teaches courses in composition and rhetoric and American literature. Her research centers on presentations of women in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American and transatlantic literatures, nomadism and displacement, rearticulations of selfhood in contact zones, and radical performance art. She is working on a book that examines performances of Jewishness in non-Jewish American novels at the turn of the twentieth century.
