Raised in Mā’ohi Nui, Anaïs Maurer is Assistant Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Rutgers University. Her research foregrounds how Pacific artists and activists have resisted environmental racism in Oceania, from the genocidal epidemics of earlier centuries to our contemporary period of nuclear colonialism and carbon imperialism. She strives to facilitate decolonial dialogue across cultures and languages and is involved in various translation projects to bring the Indigenous literature of the French-occupied Pacific to an Anglophone audience.
