B.A., Smith College
Eve Eure received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Pennsylvania and her B.A. in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies from Smith College. She specializes in 19th century African American Literature, with a focus on the intermeshed histories of Black and Indigenous people and the visual culture of race and kinship. Her current research project, The Grammar of Kinship: Black and Native Intimacies in the 19th Century, explores the literary and legal effacement of Black and Native bonds and the new forms of kin-making and literary production that accompanied that effacement. She has presented work from the project at the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA), the American Studies Association (ASA), and the Critical and Ethnic Studies Association (CESA). At Lehman, she teaches courses on African American and Indigenous literatures.
