Associate Professor of English and African and African American Studies
PhD, University of Michigan
My primary interests are in 20th century African American and American Fiction, cultural studies and theorizing identity. I am currently working on two projects: a travel narrative about sites associated with the trans-Atlantic slave trade and how they have become tourist attractions; and a project on African American post-modernisms.
