I am a scholar of Anglophone literature of the long eighteenth century with a special emphasis on the intellectual history and social movements of the early Black Atlantic world. My research focuses on the transmission of texts in the Black Atlantic world as avenues for relocating forms of political solidarity and community among diasporic subjects in the Caribbean and the Americas. I am currently a Scholar in Residence (2017-2019) at Reed College.

My dissertation “The Social Life of Black Thought in the Long Eighteenth Century” examines how political knowledge was put into practice and circulated between African diasporic communities. While completing my work in the English Department at The Graduate Center of CUNY, I received dissertation fellowships from the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean (IRADAC), and the Mellon Committee on Globalization and Social Change. I’ve taught literature and composition writing at various campuses of CUNY, and at The Harry Van Arsdale Center for Labor Studies of SUNY.
