Colin Stragar-Rice


Colin Stragar-Rice is a PhD student with the Department of Literatures in English at Cornell. Their research lies at the intersection of early modern and Black studies, paying particular attention to the relationship between print culture, technologies of power and the emergence of concepts of raciality. Currently, their dissertation is a genealogy of the tabula rasa from before John Locke to after Frantz Fanon. By interrogating the production and dissemination of its concept, this study aims to trace the tabula rasa and its contrapuntal movement within formations and socialities thought under the rubrics of the Black radical tradition, decolonization, fugitivity, marronage and revolutionary struggle.
