in cultural studies and Latin American & Caribbean Studies at the University of Illinois,
Urbana-Champaign. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M

possibility in the Americas. He teaches courses on Black cultural studies; media &
intersectionality; diaspora; cultural theory; qualitative methods; and popular culture. He is a
co-editor of Spaces of New Colonialism: Reading Schools, Museums, and Cities in the Tumult of
Globalization (2020). He is also an Executive Board Member for the Association for the Study of the

artists and their expressive cultures within a sociopolitical history of marronage.
