B.A. in Africana Studies and French and Francophone Studies from Brown University, 2018

Sam Jones received his B.A. from Brown University in 2018 with a double major in Africana Studies and French Studies. His research interests center on the exchanges that have occurred and continue to occur between African-American artists, writers, travelers and exiles and Europeans, especially Black Europeans. He is particularly interested in the ways in which white, mainstream Europeans’ consumption of African American cultural productions shapes their conceptions of race and serves as a tool to obscure and erase the past and present conditions of an Afropean population.

Combined Ph. D. with the French Department
