    CV (PDF)

    Dr. Jasmine Noelle Yarish (Dr. JNY), Assistant Professor of Political Science, received her Ph.D. in political science with graduate certificates in both Black Studies and Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her expertise is in intersectionality (race, gender, sexuality, and space), populist nationalism, urban politics, and democratic theory. Her research aims to extend the idea of abolition democracy theorized by W.E.B. Du Bois to include the political and intellectual contributions made by Black women to the era of Reconstruction (1850-1880). Her archival commitments to revisiting that early period of contemporary political thought, the primary democratization period in American political development, and the unique case of Philadelphia in rethinking the significance of Reconstruction for the discipline of political science place Dr. JNY’s scholarship as part and parcel of the growing literature on the “Third Reconstruction.” See CV (PDF)
