Research Interests

My research interests include African American, (Afro-)Caribbean and African diasporic literature and culture, feminist theory, postcolonial theory, transcultural studies and poetry.

These interests are reflected in my recently completed dissertation, “Beyond the Bildungsroman: Feminist Negotiations of the African Diaspora” (publication in preparation), as well as in my teaching.

My classes at HHU introduce students to African American/African diasporic literatures, issues of race, gender, class and representation as well as transcultural processes of cultural exchange and translation.

My current research project is a comparative examination of how Chicago’s literature and art participate in transcultural, transnational and transethnic processes of cultural and political exchange and translation in the U.S. and beyond.
