Eleni Coundouriotis is Professor of English and Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Connecticut. Her work focuses on the engagement of literature with history across a range of areas: nineteenth century realism, the post-colonial novel, and human rights narratives. She has completed two monographs that explore the relationship of realist forms to history: Claiming History: Colonialism, Ethnography and the Novel (Columbia, 1999) and The People's Right to the Novel: War Fiction in the Postcolony (Fordham, 2014). She has worked extensively in the conjunction of human rights and the humanities, publishing on how literary texts complicate philosophical definitions of human dignity, the testimony of rape victims, the figure of the child soldier, and the contours of histories of the human rights movement. Her current project looks at the representation of the hospital in contemporary fiction as a metaphor for the state and its failure to protect citizens. She directs the Research Program on Humanitarianism at the Human Rights Institute, University of Connecticut.
