Fayerweather Hall, Pruyne Lecture Hall (115)
  • Open to the Public

In this talk, the presenter offers Blackness and transness as entryways into asking the question of freedom. Taking as a starting point Nina Simone's response to the query "What's free to you?," the talk attempts to excavate how Blackness and transness inspire not only a sense of being able to live—truly, in the fullest sense, live—with "no fear," but further to think about how these terms and the analytics they name cultivate space for life predicated on an impossible openness.
