Our research is distinct in its rigorous interdisciplinary engagement, the preoccupations that emerge from transnational and postcolonial frames, and its commitment to reimagining and troubling politics. Our research situates postcolonial, antiracist, queer, and transnational feminisms in the histories and politics of place, thus our work is in deep conversation with Caribbean studies, African studies, Canadian studies, Middle Eastern studies, U.S. studies, South Asian studies, and East Asian studies.
