In her dissertation, “Toward a Black Enlightenment: the Making of an Anglo-African Class in the Long Eighteenth Century,” Kristina examines how, from the mid-eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries, Anglophone writers of African descent described and contributed to the formation of black public cultures in the Atlantic world. In addition to being a Dissertation Year Fellow with the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and Caribbean, Kristina is also a dissertation fellow with The Graduate Center’s Mellon Committee on Globalization and Social Change.
