Taylor W. Thompson is a doctoral student in American Studies and African American Studies and a Dean’s Emerging Scholar. She works to develop research at the intersection of Economic History and Black Feminist Theory.
Taylor earned her master’s degree in Oral History at Columbia University where her thesis unfolded into a public, online oral history, and speculative archive. The project developed Black Feminist listening practices for engaging with the oral histories of mutual aid organizers as they spoke about the types of futures they are working to produce through their organizing.
