Shaunasea’s research collaborates with artists in Toronto to delineate a specifically second-generation understanding of Black women’s arts practices. She is interested in how Black Canadian women artists of Caribbean descent offer blueprints for living relationally and suggest methods for radical community care. She also sings and plays piano and guitar. Her current playlist includes Chronixx, Bob Marley, Koffee, Shenseea, Adria Kain and Mustafa the Poet.
Future research will explore how sound can be used to rearticulate Black life in ways that refuse anti-black logics perpetuating Black death worldwide.
