Trica Keaton, PhD, is an associate professor of Critical Race and African Diaspora Studies at Dartmouth College. Her research interests and courses focus on constructs and lived experiences of race, racialization, racism and their intersections as well as identity politics in France, continental Europe, and the U.S. Her work also explores the various ways that racialized people respond to those lived realities, particularly in everyday life. She is currently completing a book on antiblackness in French society, and working on another about race in raceblind contexts. Her other book publications are Muslim Girls and the Other France: Race, Identity Politics, and Social Exclusion; Black Europe and the African Diaspora (co-edited); and Black France-France Noire: The History and Politics of Blackness (co-edited). Recent article publications include, “Race” in Keywords for African American Studies (Nov 2018); “Au Nègre Joyeux: Everyday Anti-Blackness Guised as Public Art” (Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art) and “Racial Profiling and the French Exception” (French Cultural Studies). Her awards range from the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Fellowship to the Ford Fondation to Columbia University’s Institute for Scholars Fellowship at Reid Hall in Paris to the Chateaubriand Fellowship, offered by the Embassy of France. She has also been a visiting scholar at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris and a long-term Associate of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University.
