Dr. Square specializes in Afro-Diasporic fashion and art of the 18th and 19th centuries. His current book project, Negro Cloth: How Slavery Built the Global Fashion Industry, explores self-fashioning among enslaved peoples as a profoundly political act and one of the most radical forms of self-affirmation in a slave society. He has taught at NYU, University of Pennsylvania, Parsons School of Design, and currently teaches at Harvard University. Square has published in a number of academic journals as well as the popular press (Refinery29, Fashionista, Hyperallergic), and in exhibition catalogs including Willi Smith: Street Couture, Garmenting. He was the curator of the exhibitions Slavery in the Hands of Harvard and Freedom from Truth: Self-Portraits of Nell Painter at Harvard University. Square founded and runs the digital humanities project Fashioning the Self in Slavery and Freedom.
