The Department of African American Studies is thrilled to announce that Postdoctoral Fellow Christopher Paul Harris has been named an Assistant Professor of Global Black Studies in the Department of Global and International Studies at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).
Harris joined the Department of African American Studies in September 2019 immediately after earning his Ph.D. in Politics and Historical Studies from The New School for Social Research. His research centers on Black political thought, Black Culture, Black Critical Theory and Black Social movements.
His forthcoming book, To Build a Black Future: Blackness and Social Movement in the Time of #BlackLivesMatter, is expected to be published in the Spring of 2022 by Princeton University Press. It draws from his award-winning dissertation, which won the Hannah Arendt Prize in Politics at the New School for Social Research.
Harris will complete his two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship this summer.
