It was a pleasure to speak with Roopika Risam and Mary Churchill, co-hosts of the Rocking the Academy podcast, to discuss The Blackademic Life, academic novels, and the current state of higher education.
I have a new review essay in the Los Angeles Review of Books on two recently published books by Chip Delany: In Search of Silence: The Journals of Samuel R. Delany, Volume I, 1957-1969 (Wesleyan University Press, 2017) and Voyage, Orestes! (Bamberger Books, 2019).
I recently dialed in to the podcast The Nostalgia Trap to discuss my new book The Blackademic Life, the state of academia, and many other topics. I was a guest on the podcast way back in 2014, so it was great to catch up with my CUNY Graduate Center colleague David Parsons and chop it up about life on the other side of graduate school.
Good news! You can now order The Blackademic Life directly from Northwestern University Press with a special 25% discount, using code NUP2019.
