    Andrew Parker 
    Andrew Parker  

    I've been a professor of French and Comparative Literature at Rutgers since 2012. From 1982-2012 I taught English and Women's and Gender Studies at Amherst College. 
    My research concerns the history and practices of literary theory, especially post-war theory in France and its world-wide dissemination. My most recent book is The Theorist’s Mother, which attends to traces of the maternal in the lives and works of canonical theorists from Marx and Freud to Lacan and Derrida. I was the editor and co-translator of Jacques Ranciere’s The Philosopher and His Poor, and have co-edited five other collections of essays, including Performativity and Performance (with Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick) and After Sex? On Writing since Queer Theory (with Janet Halley).  A new project, “Ventriloquisms,” explores interactions between body and voice across different literary traditions and media forms.

    Maurice Wallace is professor of English at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. His primary fields of specialization are African American literature, nineteenth-century American literature, and cultural studies.  He is the author of Constructing the Black Masculine: Identity and Ideality in African American Men’s Literature and Culture, 1775-1995 and co-editor with Shawn Michelle Smith of Pictures and Progress: Early Photography and the Making of African American Identity. His King’s Vibrato: Blackness, Modernism and the Sonic Life of Martin Luther King Jr. is recently published on Duke Univ. Press.
