Ph.D. Candidate
Tabias Olajuawon Wilson



Tabias employs Critical Race, Black Feminist, Performance and Women & Gender Studies and legal methodologies to examine how instances and (extra) legal precedents of anti-Black violence and racial-sexual terror continue to frame and impact notions of Black being. Employing a BlaQueer gaze engages the creative, the legal and the literary to uncover an emerging approach to encountering, understanding and extrapolating anti-Blackness as a legal precedent and a site of Black knowledge production.
