Sarah Haughn

Sarah Haughn is a placental conspirator and a PhD candidate in Performance Studies with designated emphases in Studies in Practice and Performance and African and African American Studies. Her research draws on revolutionary Black Feminist and Afropessimist frameworks to engage theorists such as Toni Morrison, Assata Shakur, Audre Lorde, and Lucille Clifton. It focuses on the making of the human in the paradigm of antiblack antagonism. Specifically, her research considers how processes of birth and gestation as grappled with in the literature of Black writers elucidate the assumptive logics operative in western metaphysics' recurrent use of gestational language to explain being.
