Britt Rusert, associate professor in the W. E. B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, will discuss her groundbreaking study, Fugitive Science (NYU Press), exploring how African American writers and performers countered the scientific racism in 19th century America with alternative versions of scientific expertise and expression. Her research wrestles with subjects rooted in multiple fields: literary studies, critical race theory, transatlantic cultural history, and the nature and history of scientific thought. The free, public lecture is sponsored by the Allegheny English Department.
