Professor Hungerford’s research and teaching focus on American literature from 1945. She studies how literature helps form the cultural imagination around subjects such as genocide, religion, social networking, and the status of the book in the Internet age. She has reached out beyond the academy with segments for public radio, a free online course, The American Novel Since 1945, and book reviewing for The Yale Review and DoubleX.com. Courses taught at Yale include Holocaust and Literature, 1950 to the Present and What Haunts America?
