Long Le-Khac's research interests include Asian American, Latina/o, and contemporary American literatures. Recent courses include "Imagining Multi-Racial Coalitions" and "Literature of the New U.S. Immigration."

Long Le-Khac’s research interests include Asian American, Latina/o, and contemporary American literatures, race and ethnicity studies, transnational and migration studies, narrative theory, and digital humanities. He is currently at work on a book project tentatively titled Transnarrative: Giving Form to Asian and Latina/o America. It argues for comparative attention to the literary transformations developing within the two racial groups most rapidly transforming the contemporary American social landscape. The study examines how Asian American and Latina/o writers expand the capacities of decentered narrative forms to theorize the tensions that migration, diversification, and interethnic coalition building generate.
