Bio

Childhood readings of Rabindranath Tagore’s poetry and stories started Saiyeda Khatun's interest in literature. An undergraduate degree from Dhaka University, Bangladesh, provided her with an extensive academic training in British literature from Chaucer to DH Lawrence.

The Ph.D. program at the University of Rhode island (URI) offered Khatun the opportunity to develop a comprehensive understanding and appreciation for postcolonial theory and literature.

Published in MELUS Journal, Genders and South Asian Review, she has presented papers at numerous regional and national conferences throughout her career. Her teaching experience spans from overseas, in Bangladesh and Singapore, to various institutions in New England, such as Rhode Island School of Design and Bryant University.
