Assistant Professor

Office: 811 Strode

Ph.D., University of Virginia

Maya Hislop received her PhD from the University of Virginia in 2018 where she specialized in twentieth and twenty-first African American literature. Her work moves a conversation about black women and sexual violence forward from enslavement to consider how a history of anti-rape and anti-racist social justice movements inform our readings of novels on the same themes. Her interests also include critical race theory, graphic novel studies, film studies, and humor studies.
