My current research revolves around online performances of queer identities. For my dissertation, I'm looking at how non-normative sexual identities are negotiated as articulated within online communities and communities as represented in literary texts as they build, or fail to do so, networks of solidarity and fraternity. My interest is on how these performances are valuable social agents that comment on a plural, multi-dimensional contemporary experience of identity.
