Episode #2 – The Last Dope Intellectual

https://youtu.be/_Zwi8UvCYlkDr. Charisse Burden-Stelly is and hosts The Last Dope Intellectual! From Dr. CBS’ Website: I am a critical Black Studies scholar of political theory, political economy, intellectual history, and historical sociology. I pursue a research program that encompasses two complementary lines of inquiry. The first interrogates the transnational entanglements of U.S. racial capitalism, anticommunism, and antiblack structural racism. My second area of focus examines twentieth-century Black anticapitalist thought with a particular focus on W.E.B. Du Bois and scholar-activists in his intellectual community. I am the co-author, with Dr. Gerald Horne, of W.E.B. Du Bois: A Life in American History, and I am currently working on a book manuscript tentatively titled Black Scare/Red Scare: Antiblackness, Anticommunism, and the Rise of Capitalism in the United States in which I examine the rise of the United States to global hegemony between World War I and the early Cold War at the intersection of racial capitalism, Wall Street imperialism, anticommunism, and antiblackness. I am also the co-editor, with Dr. Jodi Dean, of the forthcoming volume Triple Jeopardy and World Revolution: Three Decades of Political Writing by Black Women Communists (Verso, 2022) and the co-editor, with Aaron Kamugisha, of the forthcoming collection of Dr. Percy C. Hintzen’s writings titled Reproducing Domination: On the Caribbean and the Postcolonial State (University of Mississippi, 2021). Additionally, I guest-edited the “Claudia Jones: Foremother of World Revolution” special issue of The Journal of Intersectionality. My published work appears in journals including Small Axe, Monthly Review, Souls, Du Bois Review, Socialism & Democracy, International Journal of Africana Studies, and the CLR James Journal. My media appearances included The Real News Network, Breakthrough News, imixwhatilike.org, Millennials Are Killing Capitalism podcast, and By Any Means Necessary news show.
