Dr. Nneka D. Dennie is a black feminist scholar with specializations in nineteenth- and twentieth-century African-American history. Her research examines black intellectual history, black feminist thought, transnational feminism, and black radicalism. In summer 2018, Dr. Dennie will join the faculty at Davidson College as a Consortium for Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Africana Studies. As a scholar with a background in Africana studies, history, women’s studies, and political theory, she is centrally concerned with how black women in the United States and the Caribbean have interrogated and given meaning to concepts including liberty, justice, equality, rights, and power. Dr. Dennie is currently working on her book manuscript, (Re)defining Radicalism: The Rise of Black Feminism and the Politics of Respectability, 1831-1895, which is a study of nineteenth-century black women’s radical thought.
