Event Description

Tiffany King, an associate professor of women, gender and sexuality at the University of Virginia, will present “Meditations from the Shoal” via Zoom.

King will think with errant and offshore practices of Black intimate encounters with the environment. Focusing on Black erotic practices that involve dirt, mud and earth, she will ask how Black erotic ecologies reimagine human/more-than-human hierarchies and reorganize sensorium(s).

King is the first speaker in the fall 2021 Environmental Humanities and Social Transformation Colloquium sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI).
