Jenée Wilde has been selected to receive the 2012-2013 Norman Brown Graduate Fellowship, which was established by alumnus Norman Brown (’68) to support graduate student excellence. A PhD candidate in the UO Department of English (Folklore Program), she has also been selected to receive a 2012 Folklore Summer Research Grant to conduct archival research, oral history interviews, and related fieldwork within the bisexuality/science fiction communities in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
Jenée’s dissertation research examines representations of bisexuality in science fiction literature and television, and how bisexually-identified people use those images to negotiate cultural assumptions and stereotypes. With help from a CSWS travel grant, she will be presenting a paper on her work, “Undoing Binary Representation: (Re)Reading Bisexuality in Media Images,” at the July Console-ing Passions conference in Boston.
Jenée is co-coordinator of the CSWS Queering Academic Studies research interest group and a participant in the Fembot project.
