Fumi Okiji

Fumi Okiji's research focuses on the black radical tradition. She is particularly interested in how expressive work can provide alternative forms of knowledge and models of progressive social organisation. In September, Okiji will begin a research fellowship in Black Arts at Northwestern University, Chicago. Her current work, tentatively titled How to Love Black Things: Expressive Work as Black Epistemology, contributes to the debate concerning the sociality of blackness and black people, and possibilities for thought allowed by such social life.
