John L. Jackson, Jr., Associate Professor
John L. Jackson, Jr., received his Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University in 2000. His first book, Harlemworld: Doing Race and Class in Contemporary Black America (University of Chicago Press 2001), examines vernacular theories of race, class and their "performative" intersections. His second book, Real Black: Adventures Racial Sincerity (University of Chicago Press, 2005), uses ethnography to challenge scholarly assumptions about identity studies and authenticity. He has recently started a third book project on global black Judaism. As a film producer, he has also produced a nationally-distributed documentary, several internationally-screened film-shorts, and an award-winning 16mm feature film.
