What Moves Us,
Makes Us



An interdisciplinary scholar, Dr. Antron D. Mahoney's pedagogy is largely shaped by his experience growing up black and queer in the U.S. South. As such, his research and teaching explores the interrelated understandings of and associations between freedom and embodiment.  

More specifically, his work rests at the nexus of social movements and theories of race, gender, and sexuality to understand how black identity, subjectivity, and gender ideology is formed in relation to twentieth and twenty-first century black freedom struggles and queer politics in the U.S. and the African diaspora.

His primary focal points include:

  • Black Feminist and Queer Praxis

  • U.S. Higher Education

  • Leadership

  • Media Studies
