Situating Black, Situating Queer: Black Queer Diaspora Studies and the Art of Embodied Listening



This article elaborates one Black queer subject's sense of self and gestures toward the potential theoretical intervention this subjectivity poses. However, it begins by situating Black queerness in conceptual and geographic space. It proposes the usefulness of an anthropologically informed embodied listening practice for Black Queer Studies and foregrounds situated, speaking Black queer subjects in the articulation of a Black Queer Diaspora Studies. Finally, it approaches a wider geo-conceptual metaphor for the transdisciplinarity required if we are to take seriously the seductive invitation to speculate Black and queer at once.
