Jermaine Scott came to FAU from the University of Virginia as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies. His research interests include the cultural politics of sport, Black politics, Black diaspora studies, Black popular culture, and postcolonial studies. His manuscript-in-progress, Black Teamwork: Football and Black Politics in the African Diaspora, 1950-2008, seeks to understand how Black athletic collectives across the African Diaspora negotiated the colonial and racial constitution of modern sports, and football/soccer in particular. His writings have been included in ESPN’s The Undefeated, the African American Intellectual History Society’s Black Perspectives, and the Journal of Sports History.
