My research interests include the cultural politics of black rock musicians (specifically afro-futurists and mnalizedprotégés of iconic funk and psychedelic rock) through the lens of their religious, spiritual and science-fictional intrigues, as well as their ascribed racial and gender identities and authenticities. I'm also interested in the correlation between record sales and self-production/creative control.
