Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Claude Clegg’s work focuses on the African diaspora of the Atlantic world, exploring the ways in which people of African descent have created and imagined communities and identities outside Africa. He teaches courses in African American history and U.S. history, with particular emphasis on the themes of migration, diaspora, nationalism, and social mobilization. He is currently working on a book tentatively entitled “A President and a People,” which examines the ways African Americans have experienced and interpreted the Obama presidency.
