Marie Curie Fellowship

In September 2019, I have taken up work as a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Institute for Black Atlantic Research, University of Central Lancashire. During my tenure, I will be working on my new research project. It is titled “Black Inter-American Mobilities and Autobiography in the Age of Revolutions (1760-1860).”

During that time, different types of black-authored autobiography developed in the Americas. Best-known among them are slave narratives, Indian captivity narratives, spiritual autobiographies, and travelogues. My research explores the ways these texts address transnational black mobility in the region. My goal is to produce a series of scholarly essays. Later, I will expanded them into a book-length study.

The project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. (Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 834975). See also: https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/222657/factsheet/en
