Kimberly Springer is interested in retiring to a beach community and opening a chill DJ bar as soon as possible, but more likely in the year 2037.

She currently is a Privacy Advocate with the Library Freedom Project, curates oral histories for the Oral History Archives at Columbia, and is visiting associate professor of American Studies at Barnard College.

Until then her research, praxis, and publication areas include archives, privacy, and cultural studies. Dr. Springer’s publications include Living for the Revolution, Black Feminist Organizations, 1968-1980 (Duke University Press, 2005), Still Lifting, Still Climbing: African-American Women’s Contemporary Activism (New York University Press, 1999), and Stories of Oprah: the Oprahfication of American Culture (University of Mississippi Press, 2010).

She doesn’t talk about herself in the third person in person.
