Post-45 Research Group

The Post-45 Research Group is a Rutgers English Department Group dedicated to the study of literary and cultural production after 1945, with a particular interest in the contemporary moment, as well as research and critical inquiries that approach the contemporary, regardless of time period. In addition to discussion meetings, we also plan article workshops, speakers, and other events.
