Cornesha Tweede

Cornesha Tweede is a Ph.D. candidate in Romance Languages and Africana Studies at the University of Oregon where she specializes in Lusophone African and Spanish Literature. Her interests are Blackness, race, gender, postcoloniality, and the place of Africa in early modern cultural studies. Her research interests invite us to embrace the legacy of Blackness on the Iberian Peninsula, and to address the ways in which it has been suppressed within conventional, canonical scholarship, criticism, and pedagogy of the early modern period.
