Sara-Maria Sorentino earned her PhD in Culture & Theory from the University of California, Irvine. Her research and teaching excavate connections between anti-black violence, real abstraction, and social reproduction. She has articles published with Rhizomes, Theory & Event, International Labor and Working- Class History, Antipode, Postmodern Culture, Telos, differences, Emancipations, Political Theology, The Comparatist, Law Text Culture, and Qui Parle. With CARI, she hopes to collaborate on projects that challenge understandings of political and aesthetic life, constellating her theoretical work with her interest in Southern vernacular art, avant-garde jazz, Afrofuturism, and West African music.
