Brian Goodman works at the intersection of human rights, literary studies, and cultural history. His research explores how discourses about human rights, free expression, and postwar literature have been shaped through transnational cultural exchange. His current book project maps the circulation of literature and culture between the United States and the Eastern bloc, particularly Czechoslovakia, during the Cold War. He earned his PhD in American Studies from Harvard University and a master’s degree from Oxford University.
