Books Description :
Review “Afro-Fabulations helps us identify the uncanniness of black queer life and performance. In it, Tavia Nyong’o shows us how black queer artists and performers daily conjure new worlds and new possibilities and in doing so leverage their creative powers to transport us to the beyond of anti-blackness. This book is nothing less than an archive of oppositional fabulousness.”-Roderick A. Ferguson,author of Aberrations in Black: Toward a Queer of Color Critique“In this prodigious study of performances of the ordinary and the everyday, Tavia Nyong'o expands our horizon of the possible. For Nyong'o, Afro-fabulation is a critical poetics of black life. The book's extended engagement with insurgent movement and upheaval, transmutation and plasticity is both breathtaking and surprising. Cognitive science, particle physics, queer and trans theory, and black radicalism enjoy intimate company within its pages. Afro-Fabulations is a dazzling and matchless performance.”-Saidiya Hartman,author of Lose Your Mother: A Journey Along the Atlantic Slave Route“Afro-Fabulations brings virtuosic critical energy and powers of synthetic and figurative attention to the tense-queering performance of black shadow archives. It’s a stunningly generous book both in the time it takes to draw time out toward the fabulously reparative dimensions of its aesthetic objects and its capacious philosophical and critical engagements. A committed visionary and undefensive work of critical art.”-Lauren Berlant,author of Cruel Optimism Read more About the Author Tavia Nyong’o is Professor of African American Studies, American Studies, and Theater & Performance Studies at Yale University and the author of Afro-Fabulations: The Queer Drama of Black Life (2018).
