Dr. Tracie Canada is an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology and affiliated with the Sports & Race Project at Duke University. As a cultural anthropologist, ethnographer, and writer, she researches and teaches about race, sport, kinship, and the performing body.
She is currently working on her book manuscript, Tackling the Everyday: Race, Family, and Nation in Big-Time College Football, which is under contract with the University of California Press. This work moves off the gridiron into the daily lives of the young Black athletes that sustain this American sport to better understand the lived experiences of Black college football players. In addition to her academic publications, she is also a public writer who has contributed essays to outlets like Scientific American, Black Perspectives, and Anthropology News. Overall, her qualitative work aims to acknowledge what football, and the lived experiences of its Black players, can tell us about racial, historical, political, and power dynamics in the contemporary United States.
