Hope Jackson received her Ph.D. from UNC-Greensboro in Cultural Studies. Her dissertation entitled, "Stones of Memory: Narratives of a Black Beach Community" conflates her passion for storytelling with other nuances of Black oral tradition such as folklore, African American rhetoric, intertextuality as well as community pedagogy.

Research Interests

Jackson's research interests involve narrative theory, African American rhetoric, the Black family, Afrofuturism, African American folklore, Black Feminism and several other discourses. She enjoys challenging students as well as herself in finding various ways to (re)interpret the lens of cultural analyses through literary intertextuality.
