  • Scholar
  • Canada
  • 2019 PhD Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies
  • Newnham College

I am a Sudanese-Canadian student, I grew up in London, Ontario and received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Ontario’s Department of Women’s Studies and Feminist Research. I completed an MSt in Women’s Studies at the University of Oxford as a Clarendon and Prince Sultan Scholarships holder. During my PhD, in Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies, I aim to map the continuities between racial slavery, its attendant gendered logics and the Liberian civil war. As a Black feminist scholar, I write to fill the archival abyss that has obliterated Black women’s stories of suffering and resistance in a world where our personal lives are urgently political.
