Aimee Cox is an associate professor of Anthropology and African American Studies at Yale. Her first book, Shapeshifters: Black Girls and the Choreography of Citizenship (Duke 2015), won a 2016 Victor Turner Book Prize in Ethnographic Writing; she is editor of the recently released anthology, Gender: Space (MacMillan 2018).
