Liz Kella took her MA in English Language and Literature at the University of Michigan, and her doctorate at Uppsala University. Her dissertation, Beloved Communities: Solidarity and Difference in Fiction by Michael Ondaatje, Toni Morrison, and Joy Kogawa, examines literary representations of community in works by American and Canadian "minority" writers. Liz Kella researches contemporary American literature and culture, particularly issues of multiculturalism, race, and ethnicity. She is co-author of a full-length study, sponsored by the Swedish Research Council, entitled Making Home: Orphanhood, Kinship, and Cultural Memory in Contemporary American Novels, published by Manchester University Press. Her current project, "Remembering Poland and Eastern Europe: Nostalgia, Memory, and Affect in Diasporic Women’s Writing," is sponsored by The Baltic Sea Foundation.
