Raj Chetty is associate professor in the Department of English at St. John’s University 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, The Entry of the Chorus: Theatrical Legacies of C. L. R. James’s The Black Jacobins, is a study of the performance legacies of James’s Haitian Revolution plays (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 with Katerina Gonzalez Seligmann and Alex Gil, he collaborated on the public humanities digital resource, Ethnic Studies Rise! (2019-20). 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.
