Mita Choudhury has taught at St. Lawrence University (Shakespeare), New York University (theatre and performance studies), Emory University (South Asian literature), and at the Georgia Institute of Technology (gender and technology). She is author of Interculturalism and Resistance in the London Theatre, 1660-1800: Identity, Performance, Empire (2000) and co-editor of Monstrous Dreams of Reason: Body, Self, and Other in the Enlightenment (2002)—both of which are a part of the Bucknell Studies in Eighteenth Century Literature and Culture series. She is also a contributing editor of the Broadview Anthology of British Literature (2006). Currently, she is working on two book-length projects: Universality, Early Modernity, and the Contingencies of Representing Race (a consideration of the controversies surrounding analyses of early modern discourses of cultural difference) and Imperial Exuberance and the Power of Posthumanism (an examination of the rhetorics of nano, cyborg, and posthuman cultures).
