Miranda Steege

Research Areas:

Queer theory, Victorian studies, fan studies

Research Interests:

Miranda is working on an experimental dissertation that intertwines a mystery novel about a dysfunctional English department with scholarly writing on erotic fanfiction and Victorian texts about bodies. The project argues that to navigate the urgent contemporary situation around sexual consent and sexual violence, we must consider how representations of sex and the erotic across genres, disciplines, and periods influence our own sexual politics.
