Personal profile

Research interests

My project is about citizenship and speculative narratives. I study how subjects are produced, interpellated, and propagated by narratives, including fictional and non-fictional texts, a threshold that I call into question. I see citizenship as an apparatus for the production and regulation of proprietary subjects, and I consider the complicities and refusals of this in speculative texts. To do this, I draw on deconstruction, queer theory, black studies, trans* theory, and post-Marxism.
