About the event
Tiffany Lethabo King is associate professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Virginia. Professor King’s work is animated by abolitionist and decolonial traditions within Black Studies and Native/ Indigenous Studies. In her Knapp Chair Lecture, Dr. King will discuss themes from her forthcoming book, Red and Black Alchemies of Flesh: Conjuring a Decolonial and Abolitionist Now, in which she invokes both Black and Native queer feminist thought to link to the power of the erotic, to think beyond the carceral and casual violence of the state, and to imagine a bold and beautiful future of inclusion and belonging.
