I am professor of gender studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I authored Demonic Grounds and edited and contributed to Sylvia Wynter: On Being Human as Praxis. My research is interdisciplinary and attends to the links between theories of liberation, black studies, and cultural production. My monograph, Dear Science and Other Stories (Duke University Press, 2021), is an exploration of black methodologies. I am currently working on two projects: the first, unnamed, attends to questions of extraction in relation to black studies, the physical geographies of the black Atlantic, and black cultural production; the second, Pastel Blue, studies colour, colour theory, image-making, and black creative text. My research program also attends to the writings of Sylvia Wynter. I co-edit the Duke University Press book series Errantries with Simone Browne and Deb Cowen.
I teach and supervise graduate students in the areas of black studies, anti-colonial studies, studies of race, cultural geographies, cultural production, and gender studies.
