Each academic year, the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program awards a faculty member with the Linda Arnold Carlisle Faculty Research Grant to support research or creative work related to our program. Dr. Daniel Coleman, Assistant Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, is the winner of the 2020-2021 Linda Arnold Carlisle Faculty Research Grant. He will use the grant to work on Trans Ecologies at the End of the Human, which develops epistemological frameworks for an ecology of transness for Afro-descendant, Native/ Indigenous, and mixed-descendant people and the places in which they live and move. The study brings the geopolitical landscapes of Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S. and San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, México together in South-South relation with the intention of thinking about transness. Daniel uses a performance as research methodology with Afro-diasporic and indigenous cosmologies, transfeminism, and critical cultural studies imaginations to imagine trans embodiments and sensibilities as historical palimpsests. Concurrently, he envisions how to feel sites of Black, indigenous, and queer organizing, anew.
