Mark U Stein

Chair of English Studies
PTTS, University of Munster

Prof. Mark Stein is a critic, writer, and academic who runs the National and Transnational Studies programme (NTS) at Münster University. He's the Chair of English Studies, specialising in postcolonial and diaspora literatures and cultures, with a focus on porosity and translocation in anglophone cultural production.


Since publishing *Black British Literature: Novels of Transformation* in 2004, I have focused primarily on postcolonial and diaspora studies, with a particular interest in porosity, translocation, and processes of cultural transformations in anglophone cultural production. Aiming to historicise and contextualise this field of inquiry,  while also stretching its boundaries, my latest publication, *The Cambridge History of Black and Asian British Writing* (CUP 2020, co-ed. with Susheila Nasta) returns to this area.
I grew up in Cologne and LA, read English Studies, American Studies, and Political Sciences in Frankfurt, Oxford, and Warwick, and have held the Chair of English Studies at Münster University since 2006. While researching my PhD dissertation in the 1990s, I was attached to the University of Kent at Canterbury, working with Lyn Innes, and the University of Frankfurt, working with Dieter Riemenschneider, and have since moved on to LMU Munich, Potsdam, and Münster.
