I am a second-year PhD student and recipient of the Chancellor’s Fellowship for Graduate Study. I received my BA (summa cum laude) in English Honors and Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies from the University of Washington in 2019. My budding dissertation project is oriented toward the intimacies of liberalism & fascism (with a primary focus on the U.S.) in relation to desire, fantasy, death, the individual and the social, and conceptions of freedom.
