Zachary Brown

PhD, The University of Arizona (higher education)

Zachary Brown is a postdoctoral fellow with joint appointments at the Warner School and the Frederick Douglass Institute for African and African American Studies. His interdisciplinary research engages critical theories of race and gender, particularly Black feminist criticism, to study the social foundations and cultural politics of education in postsecondary contexts. Specifically attending to the archive of student protest and discourses of educational resistance, his scholarship examines how the psychic residue of racial slavery and settler colonialism on college campuses structures contemporary higher education practices.
