I am an interdisciplinary scholar specializing in Anglophone literature of the long eighteenth century and social movements through the Black Atlantic world. My research focuses on the transatlantic circulation of texts as avenues for relocating forms of political solidarity and community. I’m currently working on my book manuscript, tentatively titled Plotting Black Life in the Long Eighteenth Century. My writings have appeared or are forthcoming in African and Black Diaspora: An International Journal, Restoration and 18th Century Theatre Research, and Eighteenth-Century Fiction. My short essays and interviews can be found at Small Axe Salon, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Social Text Online, Warscapes, and the Lincoln Center Theatre Blog.
