A Compare and Contrast of Black Women Artists Across the Diaspora
Currently her work examines how visual representations of Black women artists (from genres such as - Afrobeats and Dancehall) coupled with their lyrics, individual personas, and gender performance demonstrate the complexities and contradictions of Black womanhood and identity politics. More specifically, she is interested in how Black women artists and performers curate sovereign spaces that encourage Black women to rest, self-preserve and heal their generational trauma. Her dream is to contribute to an academic scholarship that focuses on the historical timeline of Black women artists over time and studying their aesthetics, sound, and fan base as sights of knowledge production and Black intellectual thought.
Her research interests include: Black Feminist Thought, Black Womanhood, Black Queer Studies, Black Radical Imagination, Sound Studies, Utopian Performativity, Minoritarian Performance, Fan Culture, and Black Cultural Production.
