Marcus Lee is a second-year doctoral student in Political Science at The University of Chicago, where he is a Ford Predoctoral Fellow, an American Political Science Minority Fellow and a Point Scholar. His research interests include race, gender and sexuality; American Political Development and political historiography; extra-systemic politics; and the bureaucracy. He is especially interested in black politics post-1968 – i.e. the emergence and development of different streams of black politics after King’s death; the production of historical narratives of the 70s, 80s and 90s; and the normative implications and political consequences of those narratives for our current moment. He is currently developing a project on the emergence, development and contemporary historicizing of black gay politics.
