Kevin Quashie earned his B.A. from Florida International University; M.A. from Bowling Green State University; M.A. from Arizona State University; and Ph.D. from Arizona State University.

I mostly teach cultural studies and theory, including classes in queer race studies. My most recent book The Sovereignty of Quiet (Rutgers, 2012) considers what a concept of quiet could mean to how we think about black culture. In the 13-14 academic year, I am teaching SWG 100 Issues in Queer Studies and SWG 300 The Gay 80s.Black culture.
