Olga Blomgren

Olga Blomgren is the American Council of Learned Societies Emerging Voices Postdoctoral Fellow in Language Learning at Brown University. She focuses her research on questions of mobilities, citizenship, language, and power posed by diasporic and transnational authors and artists. Her work delves into archipelagic studies, multilingualism and translation studies, and mobilities studies, with the goal of broadening access to diasporic and transregional creative work in the academy and beyond. Her writing is in the forthcoming anthology Narrating History, Home, and Nation: Critical Essays on Edwidge Danticat (University Press of Mississippi 2022). She is currently working on a book which explores the intersections between archipelagic poetics, world literary studies, and mobilities research.
