Angie Morrill holds a PhD in Ethnic Studies from the University of California, San Diego. She is the Coordinator of Native Recruitment at University of Oregon and an enrolled member of The Klamath Tribes. Eve Tuck is Associate Professor of Critical Race and Indigenous Studies in the Department of Social Justice Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Educaiton, University of Tornoto. She is the co-author of Place in Research: Theory, Methodology and Methods with Marcia McKenzie (Routledge, 2015) and is an enrolled member of the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island, Alaska. Super Futures Haunt Qollective (SFHQ) is an art and research based collaboration between three avatars: SFAOW (Specularity: Fugitive-Alterity Or Whatever), Agent O, and Lady HOW (Haunting or Whatever). They are also sometimes known as the science fiction pop stars F. Sam Jung, C. Ree, and Angie Morrill. In their terrestrial forms, F. Sam Jung is a community organizer turned M.A. Candidate in the Urban Planning department at MIT and C. Ree (MFA University of California, Irvine) is an artist and film programmer based in California, and Associate Faculty in Art at MiraCosta College. SFHQ shares a theoretical and visceral relationship to haunting as a decolonial and inevitable response to the violence of colonialism. SFHQ also shares an affective, life-generating bond rooted in love that affirms our own existence and those of all people that impels us to look for, create, and demand (with critical hope) more ethical futures not-yet-here.
