In this talk, inspired by her forthcoming book of the same title, Dr. Tiffany King considers Black queer feminist and Indigenous/Native queer feminist traditions in the forging of liberatory intimate and erotic relations. The book project conceptualizes a Black and Indigenous ‘analytics of the flesh’ to think and feel with Black and Indigenous feminist and queer poetics, critique, dreams, ecologies, and praxis as sites of rupture that expose existing decolonial and abolitionist presents and futures.
Dr. Tiffany Lethabo King is an Associate Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Virginia. Dr. King specializes in African Diaspora Studies, Black Ecologies, Native Studies, and decolonial and abolitionist theory. Her first book, The Black Shoals: Offshore Formations of Black and Native Studies, won theLora Romero First Book Prize of the American Studies Association. Dr. King is also the co-editor of Otherwise Worlds: Against Settler Colonialism and Anti-Black Racism.
