Dr. Brandt’s research explores the relationship between contemporary narratives of identity and institutional structures of inequality. In examining narrative’s role in the maintenance and critique of ideology, her goal is to bring greater understanding to the ways individuals use stories—literary, cultural, digital, and visual—to make sense of the self in an increasingly globalized world. She is particularly interested in the ways in which politics shape and reflect contemporary culture.
Dr. Brandt is the co-author of An Introduction to Popular Culture in the US: People, Politics, and Power.
