About me

Alanah started her ESRC-funded PhD at the LSE Department of Gender Studies in 2019. Her project analyses how popular and academic discourses of “transracialism” both use and inflect theorisations of Blackness, using a critical lens invested in Black feminist and trans scholarships and politics. Her research interests include Black feminisms, theorisations and epistemologies of Blackness, mixed-raceness and racial ambiguity, theories of identity, and the intersections of gender, race and sexuality. 

Alanah holds an MSc in Gender from the LSE and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Warwick. She is a member of the editorial collective for the Engenderings blog. Alanah is a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Department.
