Community Engagement Director

Valeria Dani (PhD, Cornell University) is a Mellon/ACLS Fellow (2020-2022). In the course of her doctoral studies, while writing about poetry, rhetoric, radical feminism, and critical theory, she worked for the Cornell Prison Education Program, through which she taught humanities courses in various prisons in Upstate NY. Valeria’s current research interests include the intersection of language and political praxis, anti-capitalism, and abolitionist feminism. Through theAlliance, she is looking forward to bridging the hiatus between academic discourses and liberation work.
