Dr. Marquis Bey - Black Trans FeminismThu 06/15/2023
Bio: Dr. Marquis Bey is a professor of African American Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and English at Northwestern University. Their work focuses on black feminism, transgender and nonbinary identities, abolition, and philosophy. Most recently the author of two books—Black Trans Feminism and Cistem Failure: Essays on Blackness and Cisgender (Duke University Press, 2022)—they continue to work at the intersections of race, gender, and radical politics.
Book: Black Trans Feminism
Black Trans Feminism retools what we mean by blackness, transness, and feminism. No longer simply identities that people are, Bey thinks about these terms as ways of being in other words, blackness, transness, and feminism are politics, they are things one does—radically, subversively. Black Trans Feminism, then, is a book that asks readers to think about what is possible when blackness, transness, and feminism mean radical change instead of simply who or what someone is.
