Cedric Tolliver is an Assistant Professor in the Department of African American Studies at the University of Houston (https://www.uh.edu/class/english/people/faculty/tolliver/), who teaches courses in African-American literature and culture and literary theory. His research interests are concerned with the cultures of modernity in the African diaspora, which link the African Americas and Africa. He is currently working on manuscript titled “Of Vagabonds and Fellow Travelers: African Diasporic Cosmopolitan Culture and the Cold War,” which studies the cultural work of writers and intellectuals that pushed against the boundaries of Cold War discourse on modernity, racism, and colonialism.
