From 9/2017 – 6/2018:

Shatema Threadcraft is working on a book project on race, gender, and the politics of death in the United States. The project examines how necropower has operated historically and how it operates in black communities today, how the politics of gender, sexuality, and ability are implicated in the politics of death, and how necropower is justified and contested in black communities.
