Areas of Interest

  • Fiction


I'm interested in the intersection of the traditional social construct of womanhood and modern western society, exploring this crossroads within specific spaces (physical spaces like the workplace or school, and theoretical spaces like the dating pool). Particularly how these things work with one another, and where that leaves real women (as individuals, not the womanhood western societies might perceive). My research will strive to explore the conflict between women and the ideals of womanhood in modern spaces in fiction.
