C.C. McKee studies art and visual culture in the Caribbean and France. McKee’s dissertation explores the relationship between artistic exchange, abolition, and emergent conceptions of African diasporic identity in France, the francophone Caribbean, and New Orleans during the long nineteenth century. Aﬃliated with interdisciplinary programs in Critical Theory and Gender and Sexuality Studies, McKee’s research is informed by psychoanalysis and aﬀect theory from feminist, queer, and critical race perspectives, with speciﬁc attention to their mobilization in relation to theories of colonization, temporality, and materiality. In addition to more historical work, McKee also has a vested interest in writing on and curating contemporary Caribbean art and queer visual culture.
