Paul Nadal is an interdisciplinary scholar working at the intersection of literature and economy, with a particular focus on Asian American and Philippine Anglophone literature. Reading across literary and economic history, he brings archival research to the study of the novel and Marxist aesthetic theory to develop a multiscalar reading practice that elaborates historical meaning contextually and in the form of the work itself.
