Du Bois, and Scandal.  An interdisciplinary scholar by training, his research lies at the intersections of literary, cultural, and queer theories, and often pivots on questions of manhood, masculinity, and vulnerability.  He is currently at work on his second book project, tentatively entitled, Dark Penmanship: Afro-Ontology, Resistance, and Freedom.
