Existing Research

I’ve worked on issues of race, ethnicity, and identity in contemporary France, primarily through immigration and racial and ethnic minority literature and popular music.

In this arena, I’ve published a book, Race on Display in 20th- and 21st-Century France, and three journal articles.

Where I’m Heading

My second book project, tentatively titled Mediating Francophone Afropea, I will pick up where Race on Display left off, looking more closely at what I call the “intermedial” turn in Francophone Afropean literature. I am particularly interested in the materiality and intermediality of the textual form in works by Bessora, Léonora Miano, Insa Sané, Edgar Seklokoa, and Apkass.
