David Marriott is Professor in the History of Consciousness graduate program at UC Santa Cruz. His pathbreaking book, On Black Men (2000), explores how models of selfhood come to acquire cultural recognition through the fictions of race. His forthcoming book, Haunted Life, extends this meditation on discourses of inwardness and the paradigmatic aberrations of race into a comparative study of black Atlantic modernism. He is also an accomplished poet whose most recent volume, Incognegro, was released to critical acclaim in 2006.
