Dr. Ragini Mohite is Assistant Professor - Academic Writing at FLAME University.

Research:

My research interests lie primarily in global modernism, twentieth century literatures, transnationalism, poetry, and world literature.

My monograph Modern Writers, Transnational Literatures: Rabindranath Tagore and W. B. Yeats has been published by Clemson University Press in 2021. It offers a fresh critical, comparative perspective on the work of Rabindranath Tagore and W. B. Yeats from the beginning of the twentieth century, when their international influences take centre stage and their writings become increasingly significant to what is now understood as global modernism. My article on the writings, archives, and sculpture of the British sculptor Henry Moore as part of avant-garde global modernism is forthcoming with Sculpture Journal. I am also working on several projects on, global modernism and the modernist canon, fantastical representations of the south Asian city, and digital audio archives.
