Interests: African American literature and culture, Afrofuturism, digital humanities (DH), the “post-monograph,” SCALAR and other publishing platforms for media-rich, purely digital projects. I am currently at work on two book-length projects, a DH project on Afrofuturism with the working title A Genealogy of Afrofuturism and a print monograph on the subject of the afterlife in African American literature and music, with the working title Soul Sounds. My first two book-length projects were print monographs, “Each Hour Redeem”: Time and Justice in African American Literature (2013) and Unnatural Selections: Eugenics in American Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance (2004). I am a Professor of English at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.
