Educational Background

University of California, Berkeley, BA


I am a SoCal native, a Victorianist, and an archaeologist of queer consciousness. My work attempts to configure genealogies of queerness while examining the relationship between trauma and male same-sex desire. I am mostly interested in exploring the ways queerness works with and against what I see as the "maternal" aspects of hegemonic culture, particularly with the Uranians and the Post-Wildean figures of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
