Omise’eke Natasha Tinsley, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2010
Omise’eke Natasha Tinsley (Department of English, CLA), Spring 2010
Project: “Water, Shoulders, Into the Black Pacific”
Tinsley‘s fellowship allowed her the time and space necessary to make a major scholarly transition, from literary criticism to creative writing. She accomplished more writing during the semester than she initially expected, researching and drafting two and a half chapters of her proposed book project, as well as a journal article based on that project which she is submitting for publication in GLQ. The article has been accepted for publication based on the abstract, and will appear in a special issue on the black queer diaspora next year.
