Kinohi Nishikawa specializes in twentieth-century African American literature, book history, and popular culture. He earned his A.B. in English from Dartmouth College and his Ph.D. in Literature from Duke University.  Nishikawa’s first book, Street Players: Black Pulp Fiction and the Making of a Literary Underground, was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2018. His major work in progress is Black Paratext, a study of how book design has influenced the production and reception of African American literature from World War II to the present.
