Julietta Singh is a postcolonial scholar and nonfiction writer whose work engages the enduring global effects of colonization through attention to ecology, inheritance, race, gender and sexuality. She works and teaches across anticolonial studies, the ecological humanities, queer studies, and experimental feminisms. Singh is the author of three books: Unthinking Mastery: Dehumanism & Decolonial Entanglements, No Archive Will Restore You, and The Breaks. She is currently writing and co-directing a feature-length experimental documentary, The Nest.
