Robin Truth Goodman is a Professor of Literature at Florida State University. Trained as a comparatist and as a scholar in postcolonial studies, Goodman specializes in the issues of critical pedagogy, feminism, and postcolonial theory. One of her books, World, Class, Women (Routledge, 2003) was considered a "pathbreaking book" that "examines how theory and literature can be used to reclaim feminism, schooling, and economic justice as part of a broader effort in imagining a global democratic public sphere" by Henry A. Giroux, a leading scholar of education. Her recent work also includes a book on Post-September 11 US policies and another acclaimed book on the need for feminist theory to reclaim the public sphere.
Author of five books, Goodman has also published extensively in academic journals and anthologies and also frequently shares her expertise through presentations at academic conferences and through public talks. Goodman is a member of the MLA Radical Caucus and is also on the editorial board of Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies.
