Mark A. Reid


Presently, I am editing a volume on African American Film (at press), finishing a book on Afro-European Cinema and Culture, and working on a book about gender and sexuality in recent African American Film. During the 2017 summer, I presented “Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight (2016): Urban Sexual Blues as Fluid Agency” at the 34th International Conference on Psychology and the Arts in Palermo, Sicily. See my CV below for a complete list of my publications.

I take part in the Modern Language Association where I have held two delegate positions. I am a member of the Collegium for African American Research and the Psychology and the Arts organization. I hold two editorial board positions on the film journals Jump Cut and Screening Noir and have read manuscripts for such presses as MacMillan-Palgrave, Wallflower, SUNY, Cambridge, and most recently the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Criminology and Criminal Justice. My University of Florida affiliations include the African American Studies Program, the Center for African Studies, and the Center for European Studies. I teach such courses as Black Drama, The World of James Baldwin and Critical Race Theory, Afro-European Literature and Culture, and The Harlem Renaissance.
