Faculty Coordinator, Dover Campus
Associate Professor, History
University of Delaware
Sarah Trembanis teaches and studies twentieth century American history, with a specific emphasis on how culture has intersected with racial and gender identity. In her book, The Set Up Men: Race, Culture, and Resistance in Black Baseball (McFarland, 2014), she argues that African Americans used trickster tales, naming practices, humor, and editorial art to attack the racial binarism and white supremacy that undergirded Jim Crow policies in white Major League baseball. Currently, she is working on a monograph about the performance of gender by teenage-daughter characters in 1950s American sitcoms. She teaches a wide variety of courses on race, gender, film, and sport. An unrepentant travel addict, she and her family make frequent trips abroad, often to their favorite place in the world, Ferrara, Italy. She lives in Middletown, Delaware, with her husband, two kids, and Vincenzo the dog.
