CULTURAL CRITIC

Aisha Durham is a cultural critic who uses auto/ethnography, performance writing, and intersectional approaches refined in Black feminist thought to analyze representations of racialized gender. This scholarship contributes to an interdisciplinary field called Hip Hop Feminism. Recent research about Black womanhood is featured in The Crunk Feminist Collection, Media Activism in the Digital Age, and in her award-winning book, Home with Hip Hop Feminism: Performances in Communication and Culture.


Durham’s cultural criticism has been featured in Aster(ix): A Journal of Literature, Art and Criticism, and in popular news and entertainment media sites, such as The New Yorker, Haaretz, Complex, and Ms. magazine.
