Bushra Rehman, Asian American Studies

Bushra Rehman is a writer, editor and educator. 

Her first novel Corona, a dark comedy about being South Asian in the United States, was included in Poets & Writers Best Debut Fiction list and featured in the LA Review of Books among a new wave of radical South Asian American Literature. 

Rehman’ poems, stories and essays have been featured on BBC Radio 4, WNYC and KPFA and in Sepia Mutiny, The New York Times, India Currents, Crab Orchard Review, Color Lines, Poets and Writers, The Feminist Wire and Mizna: Prose, Poetry and Art Exploring Arab America. 

Rehman co-edited the anthology Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism which Rebecca Walker described as, “a must for young women of color searching for themselves within contemporary feminist/womanist discourse, and anyone else who wants to get down with the fierceness of fly, intellectual divas of color.” Colonize This! was included in Ms. Magazine’s “100 Best Non-Fiction Books of All Time.”

Rehman has received awards and residencies from the Jerome Foundation, Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, Cave Canem, Center for Book Arts, Cullman Center for Teachers, Kundiman, Hedgebrook, Soul Mountain Retreat, Norcroft, Barbara Deming Memorial Foundation and Headlands Center for the Arts. 

As a native New Yorker, Rehman is honored to teach at Hunter.
