Yomaira's current book project, Decolonial Diasporas: Radical Mappings of Afro-Latinx & Afro-Hispanic Literature (under advance contract with Northwestern University Press), focuses on diasporic and exilic Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and Equatoguinean texts in contact. Framed with critical attention to theories of decoloniality, women of color feminisms, and feminist philosophy, the book complicates and enriches ongoing conversations and debates about diaspora Black/Latinx/Hispanophone studies, the legacies of empire and dictatorship, migration and borders, race and cultural/linguistic belonging, and reparations and (Afro)futurisms.
She is the author of "Faithful Witnessing as Practice: Decolonial Readings of Shadows of Your Black Memory and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" which was awarded the 2015 Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy Diversity Essay Prize.
Her article on reparations in decolonial contexts "Reparation as transformation: Radical literary (re)imaginings of futurities through decolonial love" is featured in the journal of Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society.
Her article on anthropolitical linguistics, "The Life Work of Ana Celia Zentella: Anthropolitical Linguistics, Bilingualism, and Linguistic Communities at a Crossroads", featuring an interview with Dr. Zentella is featured in CENTRO Journal , the foremost journal of Puerto Rican Studies.
In addition to her monograph, Yomaira is currently working on several article length projects and a collection of stories on race and sex in the DiaspoRican experience.
