Jalondra Davis

Jalondra A. Davis is a Black feminist artist-intellectual, writing, researching and educating in Los Angeles, CA. She holds a Ph.D. in Ethnic Studies from University of California, Riverside and a Masters of Professional Writing from the University of Southern California. Her research focuses on Black political discourse in Black/Africana popular literatures and culture, with a focus on women, gender, and sexuality. Her current project “On Queens and Monsters: Science Fiction and the Black Political Imagination” looks at how Black women’s speculative fiction engages both science fiction tropes and disciplinary narrative discourses surrounding black femininity. She is also the author of a coming-of-age novel entitled Butterfly Jar, about a Black girl growing and acting up during the 1992 Los Angeles uprisings. Jalondra currently teaches at California State University, Los Angeles.
