Visiting Scholar

Sora Han is Associate Professor of Criminology, Law and Society, the School of Law, and African American Studies at UC Irvine. She also is core faculty of the Culture and Theory Ph.D. program. She is currently working on two books: Slavery as Contract, which brings together poetics, contract law and afro-pessimist theory to think beyond the property metaphor of slavery; and Mu, the First Letter of an Anti-Colonial Alphabet, an experimental text on the “anagrammatic scramble” (Mackey) of abolitionism. Her most recent publications on this new line of research are “Slavery as Contract,” published by Law and Literature (2016), and “Poetics of Mu,” forthcoming from Textual Practice.
