 The new president did not show any interest in higher education until the late stage of the campaign. His pick to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos also does not have any background in higher education. In addition to his impulsive and popularist policies that horrify experts, his connivance of white supremacy and anti-intellectualism especially put academe in jeopardy. We have already witnessed unpromising changes on campuses in the U.S. since his appearance for the election. Racial and religious minority groups became targets of hate-motivated incidents. White-supremacist posters and fliers, swastikas, and racial epithets, which were once believed as taboo, cause constant controversies on campus.

In The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture (Oxford UP, 2016), Jeffery Einboden writes that his "excavat[ion]" of "Arabic and Persion precedents that shaped U.S. authorial lives and letters" rests on the ongoing "remappings of U.S. literary origins" which have redefinined the ways we think about authorship, nation-states, and literary texts in the wake of the transnational turn.
