Dr. Kaniqua Robinson is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Africana Studies. Her research centers on the politics of memory, with emphasis on collective memory-making following acts of injustice. Dr. Robinson also explores the role of religion in these memory-making processes. Her dissertation study, The Performance of Memorialization: Politics of Memory and Memory-Making at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, investigates the manner in which religion functions as a form of social control in the production of memory regarding a state reform school in Marianna, Florida. Dr. Robinson is currently working on a book manuscript based on her dissertation research.
