Shana L. Redmond is Associate Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity at USC. She received her combined Ph.D. in African American Studies and American Studies from Yale University. Her research and teaching interests include the African Diaspora, Black political cultures, music and popular culture, 20th century U.S. history and social movements, labor and working-class studies, and critical ethnic studies. Her book, Anthem: Social Movements and the Sound of Solidarity in the African Diaspora, examines the sonic politics performed amongst and between organized Afro-diasporic publics in the twentieth century. She is writing two new books: one that pursues the post-Civil Rights assemblage and movement science of Paul Robeson and the other examining the performative regimes of aid music. Along with Guthrie Ramsey, Jr. (University of Pennsylvania), she is co-editor of the book series Music of the African Diaspora with the University of California Press.
Prof. Redmond is on leave in spring 2016.
