Shaun Myers is Assistant Professor of English with a specialization in African American literature and poetics. She teaches and writes in the areas of African American literature and culture, with a particular interest in their intersections with transnationalism, print culture, and the digital humanities. Her current book project, Transient Intimacies: Black Transit after Integration, examines how black writers have critiqued the inadequate social relations we call “integration,” using the effects of transit to catalyze alternative forms of intimacy. Her work appears in African and Black Diaspora and Souls and her study of the transnational dimensions of the black women writers’ renaissance of the 1970s and 80s will appear in Cambridge University Press' African American Literature in Transition. She is currently a Faculty Fellow at the Kaplan Institute for the Humanities at Northwestern.
