    I am a historian of the 20th century United States with broad interdisciplinary interests and specializations in African American History, the modern African Diaspora, and Women’s and Gender Studies. My research interests include black internationalism, radical politics, and global feminisms. I am currently a Visiting Research Scholar of Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Teaching and Research

    I teach a variety of courses in twentieth century U.S. History, African American History, African Diaspora Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies. My approach to teaching is deeply informed by my scholarly work. My courses engage multiple disciplines, fields of study, methodologies, and analytical frameworks; interrogate how race and ethnicity intersect with other categories including gender, class, and nationality; and emphasize the centrality of the African Diaspora.
