Korey Garibaldi is Assistant Professor in the Department of American Studies at Notre Dame. Garibaldi researches and teaches the modern history of the United States, with a special focus on how social and cultural formations were challenged, solidified, and reconfigured by material commodities and intellectual production over the course of the twentieth century.

He is currently finishing the manuscript for a book tentatively titled, Knock on Any Door: The Rise and Fall of Integration in American Literary and Film Culture, 1909 - 1972. The study traces the fitful de-homogenization of the U.S. book, periodical and film industries from the first edition of Gertrude Stein’s Three Lives (1909), up through the persons and cultural phenomena associated with the racially-separatist Black Arts Movement of the civil rights era.


Garibaldi’s honors while a graduate student at the University of Chicago included the dissertation research grant awarded annually by the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights; a joint residential dissertation fellowship co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture, and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality; and an internal Mellon Foundation Dissertation-Year Fellowship.

In addition to the “Integration in the U.S.” and “American Capitalism” courses he will offer at Notre Dame during the 2016 – 2017 academic year, Garibaldi’s future teaching will draw on his interests in modern U.S. history, European social history, and post-Emancipation African American history.
