Rashauna Johnson received a B.A. in Afro-American studies from Howard University and a Ph.D. in history from New York University. Her dissertation received the 2011 Dean's Outstanding Dissertation Award in the Humanities.
Professor Johnson's current project is an interdisciplinary investigation of the dominant themes of nineteenth-century Atlantic, African diasporic, and American history-empire and nation, movement and domesticity, slavery and freedom-through the transnational migrations of the enslaved through antebellum Louisiana. The Andrew Mellon Predoctoral Fellowship in the Humanistic Studies, Henry M. MacCracken Fellowship, and Morse Academic Plan Postdoctoral Fellowship supported her research. She is also the recipient of the Drusilla Dunjee Houston Award given by the Association of Black Woman Historians.
At Dartmouth, Professor Johnson offers courses through the History Department and through the African and African American Studies Program. Her teaching interests include antebellum African-American history, New Orleans and the Global South, and women and gender in the African Diaspora.
