Marquis Bey’s work focuses on blackness and fugitivity, transness, and black feminism. Marquis is particularly concerned with modes of subjectivity that index otherwise ways of being, utilizing blackness and transness — as fugitive, extra-ontological postures — as names for such otherwise subjectivities, and an attending radical feminism as an ethical apparatus of justice. Marquis is the author of Them Goon Rules: Fugitive Essays on Radical Black Feminism (University of Arizona Press, 2019) and Anarcho-Blackness: Notes Toward a Black Anarchism (AK Press, 2020). Marquis is currently at work on two book manuscripts, one on black trans feminism and another on the disjuncture between blackness and cisgender.
