Anna Hinton, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
Office: 
Language Building 409G

Anna Hinton specializes in 20th and 21st century African American literature and literature of the African diaspora. Her current book-in-progress, Refusing to Be Made Whole: Disability in Contemporary Black Women's Writing, merges Black feminist and critical disability studies theories and methodologies to articulate how contemporary Black women writers present becoming disabled as a traumatic and violent aspect of Black womanhood on one hand, but nevertheless embrace this relationship in order to imagine personal and communal healing, on the other. She teaches courses such as Race, Gender, and Disability in Contemporary Black Literature and Popular Culture and The Black Posthuman: Race, Medicine, and Technology in Contemporary Speculative Fiction. She has contributed to the collection Toni Morrison: On Mothers and Motherhood and has published in The Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies (JLCDS) and The College Language Association Journal (CLAJ).
