Professional Bio

Justin Smith is a first-year dual degree PhD in English and African American Studies. His area of interest is early 20th-century African American literature and the ways in which political identity and solidarity manifest themselves in literary texts (broadly conceived) with an emphasis on critical race theory as well as on liberation and utopia within the black radical tradition.
