Linda Margarita Greenberg is Professor of English and English Department Chair at California State University, Los Angeles. She is currently finishing a book project on the Chicana author, Helena María Viramontes, that situates Viramontes’ fiction within the context of the Chicano/a movement, transnational feminism, ecocriticism, and cultural memory. Her teaching and research interests cover the spectrum of U.S. Ethnic Literatures, with particular focus on 20th and 21st century American literature, Latinx and Asian American literature, racial and gendered narratives about undocumented immigrants, feminist fantasy and speculative fiction, bridges between literary criticism and creative writing, and intersections between pedagogy and social justice. She is also deeply invested in rooting community engagement and pre-professional practices within English curriculum and the discipline.
