I am associate professor of gender studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I research, teach, and supervise MA and PhD students in the areas of black studies, anti-colonial studies, studies of race, cultural geographies and gender studies. My research is interdisciplinary and attends to the links between theories of liberation, black studies, and cultural production. My forthcoming monograph, Dear Science and Other Stories, supported in part by two SSHRC Insight Grants, will look at the promise of science in black poetry, music, and visual art. Part of my ongoing research program attends to the writings of Sylvia Wynter. I am also editor at Antipode and co-edit the Duke University Press book series Errantries.
