Kristen J. Maye graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Afro-American Studies and History. Her research focuses on political theory with a particular interest in New World slavery, discourses of freedom, and contemporary neoliberalism. She is interested in raising questions about the position of anti-Blackness in civil society and investigating the technologies of power that seek to produce blackness as nonhuman, thus impacting the possibilities for conceiving and enacting black freedom. Kristen spent the time between her undergraduate studies and graduate studies working in criminal justice and drug policy reform in New York.
