Liz Deegan is a PhD student in the Department of English, Michigan State University. She has completed her Masters in English at Oklahoma State University in 2018. Liz’s research focuses primarily on the intersections of queer and feminist theories, cultural studies, and film and visual media. Her interests oscillate between cult and/or camp popular culture and underground, queer, avant-garde cinema, but focuses on work that disrupts long held patterns and practices within the visual world. This attention paid to disruption is borne out of her fascination with acts of formal, affective, or aesthetic rebellion, and how these alterations queer their medium-based landscape.
