Hobson has devoted her research, teaching, and service to multiracial and transnational feminist issues in the discipline. Hobson is the author of Venus in the Dark: Blackness and Beauty in Popular Culture
and is co-editing an anthology, with Ime A. S. Kerlee, titled Are All the Women Still White? Globalizing Women's Studies
. Hobson's research involves an oral history project on women in the Anglophone Caribbean (specifically Nevis and its diaspora). She is also currently at work on a second book project exploring world history narratives and black women's representations in historical and globalized discourses on race and gender. Hobson uses a transnational lens to highlight women's iconography and experiences in global or black diasporic perspective.
