Evangeline Thurston Wilder is a PhD student in English Literary Studies. She is interested in the intersection of DIY trans literary production, the emergent field of trans studies, and trans feelings and bodies. She is worried about the institutionalization of trans knowledge and tries to bring trans experience and academic ways of knowing together in her work. She has a BA in English Literature from Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. When she’s not reading or writing, Evangeline enjoys spending time with her husband and their two cats, Ruby and Esme.
