Bio/Research

Kinohi Nishikawa specializes in African American literature and modern print culture. He earned his A.B. in English from Dartmouth College and his Ph.D. in Literature from Duke University. From 2010-2012 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of African American Studies at Northwestern University. His work has been supported by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Nishikawa’s first book manuscript outlines the material history and cultural reception of African American pulp fiction in the post-civil rights era. His major work in progress considers the important yet overlooked role book design (e.g., typography, paper quality, cover art) has played in shaping modern African American literature. His essays and articles elaborate on these long-term interests with specific case studies of black book and periodical history.
