The Story of a Theory:  Coming to Black and Trans Thought

This talk will concern not so much a conveyance of the speaker’s theorizing in black studies, trans studies, and black feminism; rather, it will share the surrounding narrative journey of how such theorizing emerged at the personal, epistemological, and relational level.  In short, this talk will tell the story of how the speaker came to think and theorize the radical nexus of blackness, black feminism, and transness.

Marquis Bey is Assistant Professor of African American Studies, Gender & Sexuality Studies, and Critical Theory at Northwestern University.  Their work concerns Black Feminist Theorizing, Transgender Studies, and abolition.
