I’m an academic, songwriter, and a music producer. My current academic work can be found through my CV. I work in black studies, using theological, philosophical, and literary materials to ponder black epistemology and existence. Black feminist and blackqueer thought ground the kind of inquiry I’m invested in. Black study shapes not only my academic work, but my approach to music and life. I am on twitter, but intently attempting to reduce my time there. I can be reached by email at amaryah@vt.edu.
