Davarian L. Baldwin is a historian, cultural critic, and social theorist of urban America. His work largely examines the landscape of global cities through the lens of the Afro-Diasporic experience. Baldwin’s related interests include intellectual and mass culture, Black radical thought and transnational social movements, competing conceptions of modernity, the racial economy of heritage tourism, and universities and urban development. His teaching also brings together historical studies, cultural analysis, and social/political theory with special interest in exploring Western modernity(s) within a global frame. Baldwin is the author of Chicago’s New Negroes: Modernity, the Great Migration, and Black Urban Life (UNC, 2007). He is also co-editor, with Minkah Makalani, of the essay collection Escape From New York! The 'Harlem Renaissance' Reconsidered (forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press). Baldwin is currently at work on two new projects, Land of Darkness: Race and the Making of Modern America and UniverCities: How Knowledge Institutions are Transforming the Urban Landscape. Prior to joining Trinity, Baldwin was Associate Professor of History and African and African Diaspora Studies at Boston College.
