Lovin’ Me Some Wellesley College

My time at Wellesley College as the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Art History and Africana Studies began this August. This semester, I’ve been devoting my time to my own research on funk music and my upcoming papers on artists Moe Brooker, Romare Bearden, and Radcliffe Bailey (see the “What’s Next” section for more info on these talks). Of course, I have been thrilled to be surrounded by the fellows here at the Newhouse Center for the Humanities. My interactions at the Newhouse are really shaping a lot of my thinking on music, the body, and art history tremendously. Basically, I’m lovin’ this place!

However, I can’t wait to get back in the classroom! I’m teaching a course called “From the Bayou to Boston: African American Art and Identity” this spring. I’m even taking my students to my beloved Philadelphia in March to check out the scene there (and there is a scene to be seen).

Here is a glimpse into a typical Wellesley student engaged with art. Wish me luck!
