Professional Activities

Dr. Stamant’s work takes as its primary focus historically marginalized populations and historically marginalized forms of literature: Life Writing Studies, ethnic American literatures, and the literatures of gender and sexual minorities. She is the author of Serial Memoir: Archiving American Lives (Palgrave 2014), and her journal articles on gender, race, ethnicity, trauma, foodways, and graphic narrative have appeared in ARIEL, MELUS, a/b: Auto/Biography, South Central Review, The Hemingway Review, and Studies in Comics, among others. Most recently, she has contributed to the edited collections American Literature in Transition: 1970-1980 (2018) and The Postcolonial Subject in Transit: Migration, Borders, and Subjectivity in African Diaspora Literature (2018). She is currently working on a book manuscript, titled “Light, Bright, Mixed, Mulatto, Biracial, Black: Memoirs of Race, Color, and Belonging,” which looks at a number of contemporary memoirs by African Americans through the lenses of hospitality and hauntology about their experiences being light-skinned and/or biracial. This manuscript project also incorporates creative nonfiction: biographical and autobiographical sketches of Stamant’s own family and ancestral history.
