About the Author

Kimberly Juanita Brown is Assistant Professor of English and Africana Studies at Mount Holyoke College.


"The Repeating Body offers a nuanced analysis grounded in detailed readings of embodiment in black diasporic and especially black feminist artistic works. . . . In this thoughtful study, Brown is probing the limits of the very stories that she understands as technologies of survival." -- S. Trimble * Contemporary Women's Writing *
