Central State University
Assistant Professor of English
I am an assistant professor of English in the Humanities Department at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. I am currently working on my book manuscript, Repping the D: Race in Postindustrial America and the Emergence of the Detroit Genre. My scholarship on literature and comics has appeared or is forthcoming in the academic journals Inks, The Comparatist, ImageTexT, and College Literature, as well as several edited collections. I also contribute essays on comics and popular culture to venues for public scholarship, including Los Angeles Review of Books, Public Books, and The Middle Spaces. I incorporate this extensive research into the design of his American and African American literature courses.
