"Hill breaks new ground in the field of Francophone studies with his nuanced intersection of film studies, musicology, and literary criticism. His analyses of the musical form the biguine and the poetry of Léon-Gontran Damas, probably the least studied of the major Negritude poets, are especially important. An engaging, enlightening read."

"Black Soundscapes White Stages is an original project that successfully invites readers to lend their ears to the sounds of the Francophone Black Atlantic. It approaches its subject matter from a wide, multidisciplinary perspective... Hill's focus on sound brings up exciting questions on Negritude voices, on the place of colonial female performers, and a variety of other transatlantic "soundtexts." It is a safe bet that many scholars will listen in turn."
