Tatsiana Shchurko is a researcher and queer feminist activist from Belarus committed to transnational and intersectional feminist theorizing and activism. Her work is situated within anti-colonial feminist theorizing with a focus on multiple imperialisms within and between Europe, Eurasia, and the United States. She has been awarded a 2023 American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship. Her current research project focuses on critical genealogies of transnational feminism, specifically centering the connections between Black women’s transnational activism and Eurasian knowledge production. Specifically, her book project explores Black feminist solidarities in Eurasia, investigating how these interactions resonate with or may contribute to contemporary anti-imperialist feminist movements.
