Jafari Sinclaire Allen is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and African American Studies at Yale University. Dr. Allen works at the intersections of [queer] sexuality, gender and blackness — in Cuba, the US, and transnationally. He teaches courses on the cultural politics of race, sexuality and gender in Black diasporas; Black feminist and queer theory; critical cultural studies; ethnographic methodology and writing; subjectivity, consciousness and resistance; Cuba and the Caribbean. Allen is the author of ¡Venceremos?: The Erotics of Black Self-Making in Cuba. His current research project– Black Queer Here and There: Movement and Sociality in the Americas– traces cultural and political circuits of transnational Black queer desire—in travel, tourism, (im)migration, art and activism.
