Nikki A. Greene is the Assistant Professor of the Arts of Africa and the African Diaspora at Wellesley College. Dr. Greene examines African American and African identities, the body, feminism, and music in modern and contemporary art. Her current book project is tentatively titled, Postmodern Invisibility in Contemporary African American Art. Dr. Greene investigates the significance of music in her research, jazz in particular, in the work of artists such as Aaron Douglas and Moe Brooker. Building upon previous investigations into the aural possibilities of the visual, she treats the art of Renée Stout through the lens of funk music in a forthcoming article in a special edition of the American Studies Journal on funk titled, "The Feminist Funk Power of Betty Davis and Renée Stout." Dr. Greene received her BA in Art History from Wesleyan University, and her Masters and Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Delaware in 2010.

Taking note of the ways individuals are the sum of their past, the work goes beyond the specific to explore how everyday lives resonate with history and even myth." [Source]
