She is the editor of Globalization on the Line: Culture, Capital, and Citizenship at U.S. Borders (Palgrave, 2002) and of three special journal issues--on the cultures of global postsocialisms, comparative border studies, and postsocialist literatures in the United States. In addition, Sadowski-Smith has published on climate migration, comparative histories of US migration, transnational adoption, and transnational reality TV.

The Meet and Greet offers an informal opportunity to network with Prof. Sadowski-Smith, learn more about her research, and the institutions she is associated with, both in American and English studies and with respect to East European Studies, such as the Melikian Center.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
