Alisha’s research orbits around violence and intimacy, informed by analyses of racial capitalism, settler colonialism, and carceral logics. They are currently interested in philosophies which refuse individuation as well as ontological and metaphysical separability, as to theorize love, touch, and homemaking toward abolition and decolonization. Beyond philosophy, Alisha lives and breathes poetics and poetry.
