Speakers

Kemi Adeyemi
Assistant Professor of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies; Director of the Black Embodiments Studio @University of Washington; The Black Embodiments Studio
Adeyemi is currently writing her book, Making New Grounds: Black Queer Women’s Geographies of Neoliberalism, which explores the sonic, affective, and embodied methods Black queer women have for taking pleasure in the neoliberal city, and she is in the process of co-editing Queer Nightlife, a collection that documents the diverse expressions of queer nightlife worldwide. Adeyemi is the Director of The Black Embodiments Studio, a writing residency dedicated to developing arts criticism that queries how definitions of blackness are produced and expressed through visual, aural, and affective realms—engaging three domains that underwrite the physical and metaphysical dimensions of inhabiting black skin.
