Srimati Mukherjee is Associate Professor of English and First-Year Writing on the Teaching Track. She was educated in Kolkata, India and came to the United States with a scholarship for the Ph.D. which she completed on American Literature at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. She has published critical articles nationally and internationally in peer reviewed journals and anthologies such as The Quarterly Review of Film and Video, Jump Cut, Scritture Migranti (Italy), Asiatic (Malaysia), The International Reception of T.S. Eliot, and Transnational Asian American Literature: Sites and Transits. Her fiction has appeared in Feminist Studies and Xavier Review. As a cultural and feminist critic, her current research addresses representations of women in contemporary Bengali cinema and diasporic and immigrant identities in American literature.
Mukherjee’s areas of pedagogical interest include Global Film, American Literature, Women’s Studies, and Composition. At present, her work on committees focuses on cumulative progress in student writing and international programs on campus. Most recently, Mukherjee has started a women’s book reading and discussion group in Philadelphia which meets on a monthly basis and has lively discussions on novels and poetry in general, but occasionally on film.
