Student, English literature, University of Minnesota

Colin W. Wingate is student of English literature at the University of Minnesota. Drawing inspiration from Black Feminist Thought, Black Studies, Caribbean Thought, Black Queer studies, and Black Performance studies, his work looks at how Black peoples improvise their being (via writing/movement), to break with the genre of “human.” His research ask how can we read invention/improvisation as imagining towards a new alternative life-forms and ways of being that not only unsettles colonial/anti-Black reality, but also our own investment in being human entangled in resisting death and achieving freedom.
