Sara-Maria Sorentino is an Assistant Professor of Gender & Race Studies at the University of Alabama. She earned her PhD in Culture & Theory from the University of California, Irvine. Her research asks methodological questions that excavate connections between anti-black violence, philosophical abstraction, and material reproduction. Her book manuscript, in progress, engages a black feminist philosophy of history to put pressure on received discourses from political theology, political theory, political economy, and psychoanalysis by exposing the centrality of slavery to their conceptual worlds. She has work published or forthcoming in Rhizomes, Theory & Event, International Labor and Working-Class History, Antipode, Postmodern Culture, and Telos.
