Research Interests

In my research, I’m hoping to center the work of activists and radical theorists who lay out alternative visions for a society beyond capitalism and nation-states. Specifically I want to focus on the life and thoughts of Grace Lee Boggs, Gloria Anzuldúa, and Audre Lorde. I’m interested in how their ideas have influenced art and activism both within the US and beyond. I am also interested in engaging with grassroots activists and thinkers from many different progressive movements, focusing on the ways in which their attentions are split between resistance and reimagination of neoliberalism and colonialism.
