A Career in Critical Race Studies: Ayanna Thompson


In this conversation, professors Ayanna Thompson (Arizona State University) and Noémie Ndiaye (University of Chicago) discuss Thompson's career exploring the historical development and impact of race in scholarship, on the stage, and through the RaceB4Race collective.

This program is a part of Race in Dialogue, a series of virtual conversations on medieval and early modern critical race studies and Indigenous studies. Each hour-long session will feature a conversation between scholars across professional generations about foundational works and the current state of the field.
