Jessie LaFrance Dunbar

Jessie LaFrance Dunbar specializes in nineteenth- and twentieth-century African American and African Diasporic literatures; she has secondary interests in Russian and AfroCuban history, literature, and cultures. Her current book project, “Democracy, Diaspora, and Disillusionment: Black Itinerancy and the Propaganda Wars,” suggests that scholars recalibrate the earliest notable era of Russian influence on African American politics from the twentieth century to the nineteenth. An assistant professor of English at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, she carries a secondary appointment as assistant professor in African American Studies.
