Professor Sharpe specializes in subjects such as black visual studies, black queer studies, black diaspora studies, and mid-nineteenth century African American Literature and culture. She has authored several articles and essays on blackness, ethics, and the subject of Black Studies, as well as two books- Monstrous Intimacies: Making Post Slavery Subjects (2011) and In the Wake: On Blackness and Being (2016).

On Tuesday, September 19th, they will be in the Thompson Library for a public dialogue moderated by OSU African American and African Studies professors Simone Drake and Franco Barchiesi, as well as a book signing, from 3:30 to 5pm. On Wednesday, September 20th from 11:30am until 1:30pm, they will be present for a graduate student workshop and lunch in University Hall.
