I'll be giving some talks this year-- come say hi!
A workshop and presentation with Cam Awkward-Rich on transgender literature and representation at the New College of Florida, Sarasota, in September.
A roundtable at the University of Michigan’s Rackham Graduate School about media careers for humanities PhD-holders, Ann Arbor, MI, in October.
A workshop and evening discussion with trans theorist / digital artist / audio-maker Sandy Stone at the University of Toronto, in November.
A panel about anti-racism, public scholarship, and pedagogy at the American Studies Association Conference and another panel on the same topic at the National Humanities Conference, both in Honolulu, HI, in November.
I'm happy to speak at academic and community venues on topics related to my subject area expertise (trans studies, trans / queer literature, visual studies, and digital culture studies). I can also meet with undergraduates, grad students, and faculty to discuss pursuing non-academic careers with a humanities PhD, navigating the academic and non-academic job markets, and re-thinking graduate education.
In addition, I can serve as a sensitivity reader / diversity reader for gender and sexuality issues in fiction and non-fiction, especially transgender representation. Rates are negotiable, but my base fee is $250 for a full-length manuscript (60K words). I’ve worked with mainstream novelists at big presses and small audio producers on shoe-string podcasts, and I’m happy to work with you too. If you’re interested, email me at the address below.
