Daniel McNeil taught Media and Cultural Studies at the University of Hull and Newcastle University, and served as the Ida B. Wells-Barnett Professor of African and Black Diaspora Studies at DePaul University in Chicago, before joining Carleton in 2014 as a strategic hire to enhance the university’s research, program development and teaching in Migration and Diaspora Studies. During his sabbatical in 2018-19, he will be a visiting fellow at the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and its Diasporas. McNeil is the award-winning author of Sex and Race in the Black Atlantic: Mulatto Devils and Multiracial Messiahs, which disrupts regimes of representation that frame “mixed-race” subjects as pathological objects or “new” national icons for the twenty-first century. His current research continues to demonstrate the suggestive, provocative and explorative work of diasporic and dissident subjects who are in, but not always of, the global North. His forthcoming book projects include A Tale of Two Critics, which maps the journeys of intellectual discovery taken by America’s most notorious film critic and Britain’s most influential intellectual, and Migration/Representation/Stereotypes, a SSHRC-funded project that brings together interdisciplinary approaches in Cultural Studies, Critical Migration Studies and Performance Studies to reveal the politics and poetics of contemporary identities that work within, across and against the nation-state. He is also a contributor to upcoming collections that will unsettle dominant narratives of Canadian history and culture, African American arts, activism and aesthetics, and Francophone immigration discourse.
