Ongoing Research and Writing

I am currently working on two projects simultaneously. The first is a monograph now tentatively titled The Road to Hell: The Radical Precedents of Post-Racial Rhetoric in the 21stCentury. Support of the research for this project was provided in the form of a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in the amount of $91,445 (2014 – 2017). The second is a short monograph tentatively titled The Annals of Bean, an early excerpt of which has recently been published in Writers; Craft and Context. Composed as a race-critical counterstory, The Annals of Bean recounts the experience of a white and whitely professor contending with her white and whitely nemeses, which turn out not only to be her student, Bean, but also and perhaps especially, herself.

More information and examples of my writing may be found on my ResearchGate and Profiles.
