Kaiya Aboagye

Kaiya is a Ghanaian, Aboriginal, South sea and Torres Strait Islander PhD candidate at the University of Sydney. Her research unpacks some of the substantial and significant connections shared between First Nations and African Diasporic peoples in Australia and throughout the Black Pacific. Kaiya hopes her research will disrupt common assumptions about the “Black experience” in Australia and decolonize the ways we have come to teach, learn and engage with African histories in the global south. Her work also question’s the erasure of Black-Oceanic Indigenous histories within broader global Black studies.
