Tina M. Campt
Tina Campt is Director of the Barnard Center for Research on Women and Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Africana and Women's Studies at Barnard College. Campt previous held faculty positions as a professor of Feminist Studies at UC Santa Cruz and Women's Studies at Duke University. Campt is the author of three books: Other Germans: Black Germans and the Politics of Race, Gender and Memory in the Third Reich , Image Matters: Archive Photography and the African Diaspora in Europe , and Listening to Images, forthcoming in 2015 from Duke University Press.
Campt has gained recognition for her approach to the history of Afro-Germans, which uses a postcolonial, feminist, and diasporic outlook that combines the methodology of an oral historian with that of an ethnographer. In her book Other Germans, for instance, she uses the oral testimonies of two black Germans, Hans Hauck and Fasia Jansen. This is regarded as a significant contribution to German Studies and Holocaust scholarship.
In Image Matters (2012), Campt investigates the identity of the African Diaspora through photography, specifically focusing on black families in Germany and England in the early to mid- twentieth century. Campt reevaluates everyday photography and family portraiture, placing a particular emphasis on family, gender, and sexuality. Using postcolonial and identity theory as well as an exploration of agency, she exposes intrinsic relationships in readings of photography.
