'TEACHING TO TRANSGRESS'

My teaching and research are the mediums I use to engage in meaningful dialogues about who we are and who we hope to become. As an African-Caribbean-American woman, my research amd teaching have long ceased to be mere academic exercises. They are intensely personal and demand an interrogation of race, gender and class in which I am implicated out of necessity. While that insertion of self has helped to animate my teaching, it also makes it extremely difficult because I constantly have to be aware of that mediating and interrupting personal I/eye. For many students coming to Black Studies or new discourses that destabilize old knowledge and prniciples, learning also becomes a personal journey. The courses represented here are a small sample of an extensive repertoire. For more information about course offerings, fuller descriptions and assistance developing your own courses, feel free to contact me.
