Autumn Womack

Autumn Womack took her Ph.D from Columbia and is now an Assistant Professor of English and African American Studies at Princeton University where she specializes in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century African American literary and visual culture. Her first monograph, “Un-discipling Data: Race, Visuality, and the Making of African American Literary Aesthetics, 1880-1930” charts the relationship between emergent visual technologies, such as photography, motion pictures, and social surveys, and black literary culture. She has published on this and other topics in Black Camera: An International Film Journal, Women and Performance, American Literary History, J19, and the Paris Review of Books. Her talk today is drawn from this ongoing project.
