Dr Megan Finch

About the Speaker

Dr. Megan Finch’s research focuses on the relationship between Enlightenment/racial slavery era discourses on reason and blackness. More specifically, her current work focuses on how late 20th-21st century literature by black women mobilizes these discourses to contest the figure of the "mad black woman” and contemporary definitions of reason.
