Race and Popular Culture Lab
University of Colorado, Boulder
I am happy to announce that I will be joining the Race and Popular Culture (RAP) Lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder as a Postdoctoral Fellow in August. In the RAP Lab I'll be working with the Founder and Director of the Lab, Adam Bradley, on projects that connect the university and the broader public around the topics of race and popular culture. I will teach a courses related to these topics as well continue work on my own projects and research. My research on arts and migration will continue as I work on my book manuscript, Tropes of Tropicality and the Work of Art, about Caribbean diaspora and contemporary art in Miami. I am also at work on an article on the theme of archives of erasure. The Mapping Arts Project will continue to grow during my fellowship at CU, through my own research and my work with students and the public. Mapping Arts-Chicago is underway, and as soon as I get to Colorado, I'll work with students to plan for the project's next city. As some of you may know, I earned my BA from CU Boulder, majoring in Ethnic Studies and Art. In some ways it feels very long ago, and in others, it feels as if I have just left. As I prepare to return to Colorado, I am looking forward to reconnecting with colleagues, friends, and this area of the country in general.
Thanks for your support! I will share updates on my work with the RAP Lab and my work overall in the coming months.
