Her research questions how visuality participates in our understanding of race, and it seeks to discover how Black archival engagements and practices disrupt dominant ways of seeing. Caroline has been a teaching assistant for the courses World Cinema, Interpretation of New Media, Interpretation of Film, Hip Hop and Race, and was an African-American Studies External Fellow in 2019-2020.
