Professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Barnard College

Tina Campt's work theorizes gender, memory and racial formation among African Diasporic communities in Europe and Germany in particular. She is the author of Other Germans: Black Germans and the Politics of Race, Gender and Memory in the Third Reich (2004), which examines the mutual constitution of racial and gendered formations among German Blacks in the Third Reich. Her new project, Imaging Black Europe: Archive, Photography and the African Diaspora, studies how Black Britons and Black Germans used photography as an expressive cultural practice to create forms of identification and community in the first half of the twentieth century in Germany and the UK.
