Bio


I am the Louise Hewlett Nixon Professor at Stanford University, and Professor of Comparative Literature and, by courtesy, English.

My fields of interest include social and cultural criticism, literary theory and criticism, East Asian and Asia Pacific American studies. I have published in each of these areas, including six books and numerous articles that have been translated into Chinese, German, French and Portuguese. My most recent book (The Deliverance of Others: Reading Literature in a Global Age, Duke UP) addresses the role of contemporary humanistic literature with regard to the instruments and discourses of globalization, seeking to discover modes of affiliation and transnational ethical thinking. I am most interested in issues regarding social theory, community, justice, globalization, and the specific role that literature and the humanities play in helping us address each of these areas. I am the founding editor of the e-journal Occasion: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities.

I trained in East Asian area studies and classical Chinese literature, and comparative literature. My books can be viewed on my Books page. I have also published numerous book chapters and articles in journals such as Poetics Today; diacritics; differences: a journal of feminist cultural studies; New Literary History; New Centennial Review; Cultural Critique; Public Culture, boundary 2,and others. Some of these are available on the Articles page.

I received both my undergraduate and graduate training at the University of California, Berkeley, obtaining undergraduate degrees in Comparative Literature (English and French) and what was then called “Oriental Languages” (major field, Chinese). My graduate work focused on Chinese literature and on literary criticism and theory. I received my PhD in Comparative Literature from Berkeley in 1988. I spent one year in Taiwan studying Chinese language, and one year in Kyoto as a fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Science Research Council. There I researched Japanese scholarship on classical Chinese literature at Kyoto University and at the Research Institute for Humanistic Studies, and was appointed as a fellow at both institutions.

While pursuing a PhD in comparative literature at Berkeley, I began working in Asian American studies as well, teaching courses on Asian American history and literature. Upon completion of the PhD, I accepted a joint appointment as assistant professor in Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and Department of English, where I taught courses on Chinese literature and American ethnic literature, literary criticism and theory, and comparative literature.

In 1990, I joined the Department of Comparative Literature at Stanford. Part of my duties was to help establish Asian American Studies. I was a founding faculty member of Stanford’s Program in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CSRE), which was established in 1997. From 1999 to 2005 I served as director of the Program in Modern Thought and Literature. During that period I helped initiate and organize major conferences on Rational Choice Theory and the Humanities and World-Systems Analysis, among other events. Speakers included Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Jon Elster, Kenneth Arrow, Regenia Gagnier, John Dupre, Bruce Robbins, Linda Hutcheon, Jean-Pierre Dupuy, Anna Tsing, Michael Watts, Michael Hardt, and many others.

In 1998 I spent the fall term teaching courses on immigration, decolonization, and exoticism at the Stanford Program in Paris. In autumn 2011 I taught at the Oxford campus and gave a series of talks at Wadham and Brasenose colleges, and at the Rothermere American Institute at Oxford.

I write online for The Nation, Salon, Huffington Post, Al Jazeera, and am a Contributing Editor for the Los Angeles Review of Books

  • Influence of a dopamine pathway additive genetic efficacy score on smoking cessation: results from two randomized clinical trials of bupropion Addiction David, S. P., Strong, D. R., Leventhal, A. M., Lancaster, M. A., McGeary, J. E., Munafò, M. R., Bergen, A. W., Swan, G. E., Benowitz, N. L., Tyndale, R. F., Conti, D. V., Brown, R. A., Lerman, C., Niaura, R. 2013; 108 (12): 2202-11

    Abstract

    To evaluate the associations of treatment and an additive genetic efficacy score (AGES) based on dopamine functional polymorphisms with time to first smoking lapse and point prevalence abstinence at end of treatment among participants enrolled into two randomized clinical trials of smoking cessation therapies.Double-blind pharmacogenetic efficacy trials randomizing participants to active or placebo bupropion. Study 1 also randomized participants to cognitive-behavioral smoking cessation treatment (CBT) or this treatment with CBT for depression. Study 2 provided standardized behavioural support.Two hospital-affiliated clinics (study 1), and two university-affiliated clinics (study 2).A total of 792 self-identified white treatment-seeking smokers aged ≥18 years smoking ≥10 cigarettes per day over the last year.Age, gender, Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence, dopamine pathway genotypes (rs1800497 [ANKK1 E713K], rs4680 [COMT V158M], DRD4 exon 3 variable number of tandem repeats polymorphism [DRD4 VNTR], SLC6A3,3' VNTR) analyzed both separately and as part of an AGES, time to first lapse and point prevalence abstinence at end of treatment.Significant associations of the AGES (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.10, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.06-1.14, P = 0.009) and of the DRD4 VNTR (HR = 1.29, 95% CI = 1.17-1.41, P = 0.0073) were observed with time to first lapse. A significant AGES by pharmacotherapy interaction was observed (β standard error = -0.18 [0.07], P = 0.016), such that AGES predicted risk for time to first lapse only for individuals randomized to placebo.A score based on functional polymorphisms relating to dopamine pathways appears to predict lapse to smoking following a quit attempt, and the association is mitigated in smokers using bupropion.
