Armond Towns

Armond Towns is an assistant professor of Culture and Communication at the University of Denver. He is increasingly interested in “man’s” representation in both scientific and philosophical discourses. This leads him to examine the intersections between race, gender, sexuality, class, time, and space. His areas of study include, but are not limited to, black radicalism, media and cultural studies, post- and de-colonial studies, the philosophy and science of race, feminist and queer geography, and political economy. He is completing a manuscript, titled Racial Narcosis, that examines the interrelations between Frantz Fanon and Marshall McLuhan.
