About Jene Schoenfeld

Jené Schoenfeld teaches courses in American literature, particularly writers of African descent. Professor Schoenfeld's teaching and research are fueled by a curiosity about social boundaries, especially the American color line. She specializes in representations of the mulatto in American fiction and culture.
Currently, she is working on a book on how, under segregation, the incorporation of the mulatto into the category "black" occasioned a reconsideration of the meaning of blackness itself. The fiction of Frances Harper, Charles Chesnutt, Nella Larsen, Jean Toomer figure prominently into that study. Toni Morrison and William Faulkner are also among Professor Schoenfeld's intellectual passions.
