Fred Moten

The poet, philosopher, and scholar Fred Moten is the author or co-author of more than a dozen books. The Feel Trio, a 2014 book of poetry, was a finalist for the National Book Award. His three-volume collection of essays, consent not to be a single being (2017, 2018), has been described by Maggie Nelson as “offering up some of the most affecting, most useful, theoretical thinking that exists on the planet today.” A 2020 MacArthur Foundation fellow, Moten has served on the editorial boards of Callaloo, Discourse, American Quarterly, and Social Text. He currently teaches at New York University, where he is Professor in the Department of Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts.
