Dr. Marquis Bey (they/them) is Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Northwestern University. Their work focuses on blackness and fugitivity, transness, and black feminist theory. Bey is particularly concerned with modes of subjectivity that index otherwise ways of being, utilizing blackness and transness—as fugitive, extra-ontological postures—as names for such otherwise subjectivities. Forthcoming with Duke University Press is Bey’s most recent monograph Black Trans Feminism, which attempts to theorize the convergence of blackness, transness, and black feminism via the Black Radical Tradition, critical theory, and contemporary literature. They are the author of Anarcho-Blackness: Notes Toward a Black Anarchism (2020), and “The Trans*-Ness of Blackness, the Blackness of Trans*-Ness” in TSQ, among other significant publications.
