Paul Nadal’s research focuses on developing historicist and formalist approaches to literature, with specializations in Asian American and Philippine Anglophone literature. He is working on two manuscript projects. The first is a study of realism in the Filipino novel in English in relation to the political economy of human labor export and migrant remittances. Titled “Remittance Fiction,” his book offers a new history of the Philippine Anglophone novel by tracing its evolution within the transpacific educational exchange system of U.S.
