Alamgir Hossain

I am a PhD candidate in English at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. My project explores how South Asian literature represents the capitalist exploitation of the environment and the environmental subaltern of the South in the interest of the global North and the Third World elite, and what strategies this literature offers to deal with the environmental challenges brought about by the neoliberal model of development. My research interests include postcolonialism, the environmental humanities, world literature, and literary and cultural theory. I have been affiliated with the Unit as a student, a blogger, and a regular participant in its events since 2016.
