Dr. Sheena Mason earned her Ph.D. in English literature “with distinction” in May 2021 from Howard University. She will join the faculty at SUNY Oneonta in Oneonta, NY, in August 2021, as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in African American literature. Currently, she teaches at Howard University and California Lutheran University. Her book titled Decolonizing America’s Raci(al/st) Imagination: an Examination and Critique of Anti-Racist Discourse has been accepted by Palgrave MacMillan and is anticipated to hit the press in early 2022. Her sustained interest in understanding systemic racism and, importantly, being a change agent for social justice resulted in her primary specialization in African American literature. These successes and highlights affirmed for Dr. Mason her life’s purpose, which is to inform and inspire an equitable world of possibilities for underserved communities, for people who experience hardships similar to those she lived through and overcame. Now, Dr. Mason is ready to share her wealth of knowledge and experience.
