Spelman Anthropology Professor Shanya Cordis
Shanya Cordis, Ph.D., an assistant professor of sociocultural anthropology, has been published in the peer-reviewed Small Axe journal. Her article, "Forging Relational Difference: Racial Gendered Violence and Dispossession in Guyana," traces the specificity of indigenous and Black dispossession and antiblackness as integral to Guyanese nation formation and the Caribbean more broadly. It ultimately calls for an expansive Caribbean feminist politics that reckons with indigenous political subjectivities and Black place-making beyond statist framings toward mutual liberation.
