The Department of English is proud to announce graduate student Jo Giardini has received a Yale LGBT Studies Research Fellowship for Spring 2021. This fellowship supports scholars from any field pursuing research in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer studies at Yale University, utilizing the vast faculty resources, manuscript archives, and library collections available at Yale.

Jo’s research research on Samuel Delany is part of their dissertation project, A Matter of Separation: Anti-Urban and Communal Imaginaries in North American Literature, in which they examine how writers from the late 1960s into the early 1980s responded to changes in urban politics by imagining, participating in, and critiquing experiments in identity-based social structures.
