Jennifer C. Nash is the Jean Fox O'Barr Professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Duke University. She earned her PhD in African American Studies at Harvard University and her JD at Harvard Law School. She is the author of The Black Body in Ecstasy: Reading Race, Reading Pornography (awarded the Alan Bray Memorial Book Prize by the GL/Q Caucus of the Modern Language Association) and Black Feminism Reimagined (awarded the Gloria Anzaldúa Book Prize by the National Women's Studies Association). She is also the editor of Gender: Love (Macmillan, 2016). She has published articles in GLQ, Social Text, Feminist Studies, Feminist Theory, Signs, and American Quarterly.

Charles Kronengold teaches music history at Stanford. He is the author of Live Genres in Late Modernity: American Music of the Long 1970s, many articles on Western art music, popular music, film, and aesthetics, a book-in-progress, Crediting Thinking in Soul and Dance Music, and, with Adrian Daub, The James Bond Songs: Pop Anthems of Late Capitalism.

Led by Professor Jisha Menon and the collective energy of graduate students, this event is a part of the “Arts + Justice” Geballe Workshop Series of the Stanford Humanities Center. Throughout the year, we hope to engage with scholars and artists on the implications of justice (in all of its range of meanings), including the cultural terrain of law, aesthetics of resistance, practices of restorative justice, and the position of art within these debates.
