Srimati Mukherjee

Professor of English
Temple University

I am a Professor of English at Temple University in Philadelphia and love writing on global film and American literature. I enjoy teaching, seeing new places and traveling in general, and spending time with my daughter. Having grown up in Kolkata, India, I am addicted to poetry, particularly that of Rabindranath Tagore. As for many Bengalis, his songs and philosophy bring meaning to my life helping to create a bridge between the mortal and the transcendent.


I am a Professor of English at Temple University in Philadelphia, USA. My first book is Women and Resistance in Contemporary Bengali Cinema: A Freedom Incomplete (Routledge 2016). I have published critical articles in journals such as Quarterly Review of Film and Video, Jump Cut, South Asian History and Culture, Scritture Migranti, and Asiatic as also in anthologies such as The International Reception of T.S. Eliot and Transnational Asian American Literature: Sites and Transits. My short fiction has been published in Feminist Studies and Xavier Review. Originally from Kolkata, India, I am passionate about the poetry and philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore.
