Monet Timmons graduated from Emory University in 2018 with a B.A. in English and African American Studies. She is currently a second year English PhD student at the University of Delaware. Her research investigates 19th and 20th enslaved Black women and Black women writers in the archive with an emphasis on historical and public memory. In addition to archival research, Monet engages with digital scholarship to understand the lived experiences of Black women. She has curated digital exhibits pertaining to the activism and lecture circuit of Frances Ellen Watkins Harper and the correspondence between Alice Dunbar-Nelson and Edwina B. Kruse. Monet's interdisciplinary work considers the memory-work established 19th and 20th century Black women and the role of scholars to continue this work today.
