Shaunasea Brown is a PhD candidate in the Humanities program at York University. She self-identifies as a Jamaican-Canadian woman of African descent and is passionate about all things Black. Shaunasea’s current research collaborates with artists from Toronto and surrounding areas to delineate second-generation experiences of Black Caribbean Canadian women. Her previous research analyzed Black women and girl’s hair politics in Canada. Some of research interests include African diasporic aesthetics, constructions of race and racism, Black feminist and Womanist studies and Pan-Africanist thought. As a musician who sings and plays the piano and guitar, Shaunasea is also interested in incorporating more of her music into her scholarly approaches. Future projects will explore how sound can be used to (re)articulate Black life in ways that directly refuse the anti-Black logics facilitating disproportionate rates of Black death worldwide. Her current playlist includes artists, such as, Chronixx, Bob Marley, Shenseea, Koffee and Mustafa. .
