Justus Berman's primary fields are contemporary Asian American and Latinx literature and the politics of race and ethnicity. Justus's current research occurs at the intersection of decolonial thought, aesthetics, and media studies, exploring literary examinations of technoculture and aesthetic production as these dynamics relate to racial justice and identity. Additionally, he is interested in the emergence of speculative genres as an important locus of critique for authors of color. As artworks envision alternative futures, histories, or presents, how does the re-inscription of intersectional identities produce worlds that are familiar or radically different from existing cultural and historical formations?
