Dylan Rodríguez is an abolitionist teacher, scholar, and activist. He was named to the inaugural class of Freedom Scholars in 2020 and is President of the American Studies Association (2020-2021). He has worked as a Professor at the University of California, Riverside since 2001, and recently served as the faculty-elected Chair of the UCR Division of the Academic Senate (2016-2020) and Chair of Ethnic Studies (2009-2016).
Dylan’s thinking, writing, teaching, and scholarly activist labors address the complexity and normalized proliferation of historical regimes and logics of anti-Blackness and racial-colonial violence in everyday state, cultural, and social formations. He conceptualizes abolitionist and other forms of movement as part of the historical, collective genius of rebellion, survival, abolition, and radical futurity.
He is the author of three books, most recently White Reconstruction: Domestic Warfare and the Logic of Racial Genocide (Fordham University Press, 2021), and is co-editor of Critical Ethnic Studies: A Reader (Duke University Press, 2016). Dylan can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org as well as on Twitter (@dylanrodriguez), Instagram (dylanrodriguez73), and Facebook (www.facebook.com/dylanrodriguez73).
