I am interested in researching the intersections of queer bodies and fandom in literature, media and popular culture. The book proposal for my first monograph ‘Queerbaiting in Television and Film: Representation, Participation, and Practice’ is currently undergoing the peer review process with the University of Wales Press for inclusion in their new Queer and Trans Intersections Series.
I am developing my queer studies research into an interdisciplinary Film, Literature, and Media and Cultural studies project that explores transgender and non-binary bodies and disordered eating in horror and Gothic fiction and film. This research will take the form of my second monograph.
