Andre Carrington

André Carrington, PhD

Associate Professor, Department of English and Philosophy

College of Arts and Sciences







Carrington's research focuses on the cultural politics of race, gender and genre in 20th century American literature and the arts. He has devoted particular attention to considerations of cultural production and identity, especially those articulated in feminist criticism, critical race theory, performance studies and Marxism. His first book, Through a Lens, Darkly: Blackness in Speculative Fiction and Media, which is scheduled for release in 2015 from the University of Minnesota Press, examines cultural production and African-American identity in science fiction and fantasy texts. Carrington is on the Board of Directors for the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies, the nation's oldest university-based institute for scholarship in the interest of the LGBT community, and has been called on as a peer reviewer for African American Review, the Journal of Modern Literature, Racial History Review and the Journal of Homosexuality.
