Goddard MFA Faculty Jan Clausen’s “Against Literary Nationalism”

Goddard MFA faculty member Jan Clausen‘s  essay “Against Literary Nationalism” has been published in Jacobin Magazine.
In the essay, based on thoughts from a post on the Goddard MFA blog The Writer in the World , Clausen writes, “Writers in the U.S. must embrace traditions of radical dissent — not American exceptionalism — if they want to resist Trump.”  She looks to writing and actions of Adrienne Rich, James Baldwin, June Jordan, Jose Marti, Rabih Alameddine, Paul Beatty, and others, for a way forward.  Read the full article here.
Clausen’s 1999 memoir, Apples and Oranges:  My Journey Through Sexual Identity, will be reissued in May by Seven Stories Press.
