Janice J. Anderson is a PhD candidate in Humanities at York University in Toronto. Her doctoral research considers self-fashioning and world-making in Black womxn’s intellectual traditions and literatures in the Americas. Areas of research interest include the Black womxnisms/ feminisms, Black Radical Tradition, Black aesthetics and Black literatures. She seeks to engage a scholarly practice that adheres to Canadian geographer Katherine Mc Kittrick’s admonishments to shift “our analytic frame away from the lone site of the suffering [Black] body” and “toward co-relational texts, practices, and narratives that emphasize black life” (McKittrick 2014). Anderson’s work has been included in Small Axe Salon and TOPIA: Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies.
