She works on African American literature, with an emphasis on black geographies and radical spatial practice in the United States. Her current book project looks at practices of inscription and mark-making as modes of spatial production, representation, and reinvention.

This Spring, Kelley is teaching a First-Year Seminar on black historical fiction.
