Rahsaan Mahadeo

Rahsaan Mahadeo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Black Studies program at Providence College. As a scholar of race, time, the human and the episteme, Rahsaan studies how time is racialized, how race is temporalized and how racialization and racism condition youth’s perspectives on time. In his forthcoming book, Funk the Clock: Transgressing Time while Young, Perceptive, and Black (Cornell University Press), he explores how black and other racialized youth in urbanized space reckon with time. Rahsaan’s work forges new directions in the sociology of time, the life course perspective, urban sociology, and ethnic and racial studies. His writing has appeared in Critical Sociology, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, Theory in Action, The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development, Contexts, The Poetry Project Newsletter and Truthout.
