Dr. Marcoux’s research focuses on the cross-fertilizations between Black music, literature, especially poetry, and social movements. His research is also concerned with the literary foundations and forefathers of these movements, which has led to articles on Langton Hughes. He is deeply invested in studies on the "New" Black Poetry of the 1960s. He has produced books chapters (to be published) on Sonia Sanchez and Amiri Baraka. He is currently working on a literary history of the Umbra poets. His other research interests include the literary counterculture in the U.S. (1945-1970), and experimental poetry.
