Careers: A Discussion with Charisse Burden-Stelly, Black Studies Scholar


Today on New Books in African American Studies I am chatting with Carleton College Assistant Professor of Africana Studies and Political Science Dr. Charisse Burden-Stelly. Dr. Burden-Stelly is a critical Black Studies scholar of political theory, political economy, intellectual history, and historical sociology. On today's episode we discuss Dr. Burden-Stelly's path from graduate school through, teaching, and scholarship as a committed scholar of Black Studies. We also discuss how she plans out her research and writing agenda. Dr. Burden-Stelly is one of my favorite thinkers in Blackademia, and by the end of this episode, you might just say the same thing. Enjoy, New Books in African American Studies family.
