Megan Feifer (she/her/hers) is a Teacher-Scholar in Residence at the bell hooks center at Berea College. She earned her B.A. and M.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin and a Ph.D. in Literary Studies with a minor in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies from Louisiana State University in 2018. Her research and teaching interests focus on the counter-narratives and counter-archives contemporary Afro-diasporic writers produce in response to what Anne McClintock terms the “official ghosting,” or inability/unwillingness of nations to confront and account for the “past.” She is coeditor of a volume titled Narrating, History, Home, and Dyaspora: Critical Essays on Edwidge Danticat, forthcoming from University Press of Mississippi, and author of the article, The Remembering of Bones: Working Through Trauma and the Counter-Archive in Edwidge Danticat’s Farming of Bones. Both her pedagogy and research center on hooks’ critical examination of trans-border systems of domination. During her tenure at the bell hooks center, she will work to foster sustained critical attention to hooks’ Love and Teaching Trilogies.
