Raj Chetty is assistant professor of Black Literature and Culture in the English and Comparative Literature Department at San Diego State University, specializing in Caribbean literature across English, Spanish, and French languages. He is at work on two projects. The first, “On Refusal and Recognition”: Disparate Blackness in Dominican Literary and Expressive Cultures, focuses on black recognition, principally as theorized by Frantz Fanon, to study the articulations between Dominican literary and expressive arts in the post-Trujillo period and conceptualizations of black and African diaspora. The second is a study of the performance and theatrical legacies of C. L. R. James’s plays about the Haitian Revolution (Toussaint Louverture, 1936, and The Black Jacobins, 1967). With Amaury Rodríguez, he is the co-editor of a special issue of The Black Scholar on “Dominican Black Studies” (2015), and his work appears in Small Axe, Callaloo, Palimpsest: A Journal on Women, Gender, and the Black International, Meridional: Revista Chilena de Estudios Latinoamericanos, and Afro-Hispanic Review.
