Patrice D. Douglass
Patrice D. Douglass is Assistant Professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Duke University. She received her PhD in Culture and Theory from the University of California, Irvine. Her research interests include black feminist theory, the legal archive of slavery, political theory, and gender theory. Patrice is currently working on her book manuscript, Politicizing Gender: Sociogeny, Violence, and Narrative in Black, which interrogates the assumptive logics of political and gender theory by reading critical works in contradistinction to Black feminist engagements with the appearances of sexual violence against the enslaved in antebellum case law. Patrice’s publications have appeared and are forthcoming in Souls, The Black Scholar, Zeitschrift für Anglistik und Amerikanistik: A Quarterly of Language, Literature and Culture, Theory and Event, Journal of Visual Culture, and Oxford Bibliographies.
