Kelly Mee Rich is Associate Professor of English at Harvard University. Her book manuscript, States of Repair: Imagining Welfare in the Postwar British and Anglophone Novel (under contract with Oxford University Press), studies Britain’s transition from warfare to welfare and its influence on the literary imagination. She is also in the early stages of a second project, Children of Conflict: Transnational Kinship and Literary Form, which explores how transnational adoption has figured as a form of postwar reparation. Her work has appeared in journals including ELH, Law, Culture, and the Humanities, and Contemporary Literature, and most recently, a special issue on Kazuo Ishiguro that she co-edited for Modern Fiction Studies with Chris Holmes.
