Rebecca H. Hogue writes and teaches about empire, militarization, and the environment in the Pacific Islands and Oceania. She earned her PhD in English with a Designated Emphasis in Native American Studies at the University of California, Davis, where she was a Mellon/ACLS fellow. She is currently working on a book manuscript, "Nuclear Archipelagos," on the aesthetics of Pacific Islander anti-nuclear multi-media. She was the co-editor of the special forum on "Transnational Nuclear Imperialisms" in the Journal of Transnational American Studies, and is the co-editor, along with Craig Santos Perez, of a forthcoming anthology on the Environmental Humanities in Oceania and the Pacific Islands. Her work has also been published in MFS: Modern Fiction Studies among others, and is forthcoming in Critical Ethnic Studies and the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Literature.
At Harvard, Rebecca's teaching and mentoring specializations include Critical Indigenous Studies, Settler Colonial Studies, Indigenous Literatures, Postcolonial Literatures, Feminisms, Environmental Humanities, Feminst Science Studies, Critical Militarisms, and Pacific Studies. In Hist & Lit, she teaches the HL90: "Nuclear Imperialisms," the Sophomore Tutorial on "Empire & Migration," and advises junior tutorials and senior theses. She also teaches a course at Harvard Summer School on "Global Environmental Literatures."
Rebecca is always happy to meet with students to discuss their research interests. She is a former Ivy League student-athlete (Columbia Basketball), former high school teacher and coach, and grew up in Hawai'i. As such, she's particularly happy to talk about balancing work-life-school-sports, studying far from home, and teaching. Her email address is rhogue [at] fas [dot] harvard [dot] edu and she tweets [at] rebeccahogue.
