Tiffany (Lethabo) King's research focuses on Black gender formation and sexuality in the African Diaspora, critical geographies, and the intersections of slavery and settler colonialism in the U.S. and Canada.  She is currently working on her first manuscript, tentatively titled In the Clearing: Black Female Bodies and Settler Colonial Landscapes.  In this book, King argues that settler colonial power is as much constituted by slavery as it is the genocide of Indigenous people. In the Clearing examines the ways that settler colonial power requires the production of Black female bodies as both symbolic and material manifestations of settler space and property.
