Andreá N. Williams
Andreá Williams' Dividing Lines: Social Class Anxiety and Postbellum Black Fiction (2013) examines how late-nineteenth-century black authors represent intraracial stratification and class mobility. She is a co-editor of the volume North Carolina Slave Narratives (UNC Press, 2003). Her research interests further include 19th-century U.S. women's writing, black periodical fiction, the works of Sutton Griggs, and singleness and sexuality in African American culture. She recently has taught undergraduate courses such as "Black Coming-of-Age Narratives" and "The American Dream, 1865-1914," as well as a graduate seminar on "The 1890s in African American Literature and Culture."
