Kashif Dennis is a Ph.D. student at the Ohio State University in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies. His research interests stem from his background as a visual artist, where he draws from the cultural festival of Trinidad Carnival as a socio-political and historical site for speculations on queer futurity. Dennis believes that the structure of the Carnival can be utilized as a model for investigations of futurity which cite the Caribbean's cultural, racial and sexual past, present and future through speculative storytelling.
