Contemporary American literature, queer theory, rhetoric

I am a second-year student in the English MA program specializing in contemporary American literature. My literary analysis draws on queer theory, rhetorical theory, and disability studies. Currently, my primary research interest is the phenomenon of “cringe,” both in terms of how it works in general as well as how it functions within queer communities and queer writing. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
