Writing & Research Projects

Currently I’m writing my doctoral dissertation. The project looks at how the HIV/ AIDS crisis acted as an impetus, causing a heightened production of queer knowledges. I’m thinking about how new queer knowledges were produced by queer peoples and queer communities, how they were produced in novel ways, and how queer knowledge can influence feminisms today. Chapter teasers to come… because, you know, I’m still figuring it all out…

I’m also writing an article drawing from archival research I performed at IHLIA, the largest queer archive in Europe. During my research there I found some pretty great erotic fiction and queer visual art produced in Amsterdam during the AIDS epidemic. In the article I’m thinking about how these erotic texts can be used as pedagogical guides and tools.
