Jenée Wilde, Department of English (Folklore) — “Speculative Fictions, Bisexual Lives: Changing Frameworks of Non-Binary Desire.”  While studies of gay, lesbian, and transgender communities and cultural production have dramatically increased over the last two decades, research on bisexuality remains highly undervalued in humanities and a majority of social science disciplines. To challenge this dearth of scholarship and to demonstrate the untapped potential of bisexuality studies, Jeneé Wilde’s English/Folklore PhD project develops a fresh approach using textual, cultural, and ethnographic methods of bisexuality research.
