Troizel Carr

Ph.D. Candidate

Troizel is black + queer + alive and it is downright revolutionary. He exists at the interstice of academic scholarship and performative praxis, wherein which he is concerned with the textured and erotic relationship that blackness has to being. In particular, his current research interest seeks to explode the slave ship hold as an otherworldly scene of queer sensualities.

Why PS @ NYU?

Performance Studies was the one place that I felt like all of my scholarly interests could lie together, at times comfortably, and other times, uncomfortably. It's this contradictory balance that really invigorates the work.
