Educational Background 

  • Ph. D, Sociology and Anthropology, Northeastern University  

Teaching and Research

Professor Saucier's scholarly interests include black studies, antiblackness and white supremacy, critical theory, black cultural studies, ethnography, and radical politics.  His research and teaching are deeply attentive to the contradictions of current theorizing and thinking about racial oppression, principally as it relates to the broader African Diasporic experience, and movements of black resistance.  In particular, he is interested in the intersection between existence, politics, and popular culture and what they reveal about the operations of power that are so often concealed in studies on race.
