Goddard MFA faculty member Jan Clausen‘s  essay “Against Literary Nationalism” has been published in Jacobin Magazine.

In the essay, based on thoughts from a post on the Goddard MFA blog The Writer in the World , Clausen writes, “Writers in the U.S. must embrace traditions of radical dissent — not American exceptionalism — if they want to resist Trump.”  She looks to writing and actions of Adrienne Rich, James Baldwin, June Jordan, Jose Marti, Rabih Alameddine, Paul Beatty, and others, for a way forward.  Read the full article here.

Clausen’s 1999 memoir, Apples and Oranges:  My Journey Through Sexual Identity, will be reissued in May by Seven Stories Press.
