Omar Dieng

Adjunct Lecturer


Omar Dieng’s research interests focus on race theory, global Black studies, and Afro-diasporic identities and cultures in Literature, Philosophy, and History. He uses Literature, History, and Cultural Studies to examine the meaning of Blackness from a transnational perspective. He will be teaching a course on Global Blackness and Black Activism from 1920s to present, which explores how Black subjects grapple with their sense of identity across national borders, and examine their practices of agency against eurocentrism.
