Omise'eke Natasha Tinsley is an associate professor of English at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Her first book, Thiefing Sugar: Eroticism Between Women in Caribbean Literature (Duke University Press 2010), excavates and explores Dutch-, English-, and French-language Caribbean women's texts between 1900 and 1990, tracing how their queering of landscape-as-female-beloved metaphors imagines a poetics and erotics of decolonization. She is currently at work on a historical novel entitled Water, Shoulders, Into the Black Pacific, which draws from oral histories to imagine intersections of migration, work, and desire experienced by African/Haitian American women who came from New Orleans, Louisiana to Richmond, California to work in Kaiser's shipyards during World War II.
