J. Dillon Brown's research and teaching interests center on postcolonial literature and theory, with a particular focus on the English-speaking Caribbean. His first book, Migrant Modernism: Postwar London and the West Indian Novel (University of Virginia Press, 2013), traces the interrelations between postwar West Indian novels and the British modernist tradition. His essays and reviews have been published in a variety of places, including Contemporary Literature, Modern Fiction Studies, ARIEL, and the Journal of West Indian Literature. He is currently working on a collection (co-edited with Leah Rosenberg), Beyond Windrush: Rethinking Postwar West Indian Literature (forthcoming from the University of Mississippi Press), as well as a book that examines the multifarious roles the United States has played in the cultural and political imagination of the Caribbean.
