I'm a third-year Ph.D. student interested in immigration, queer theory, and Haitian studies. Using queer theory, my doctoral research will examine how immigration categories/statuses spatially organize "foreign" bodies to determine who belongs and who is excluded, specifically, Haitians living with temporary protection status in Kentucky. I'm building upon my previous research at the University of Cincinnati which focused on the identity formation of queer Haitian women living in New York and Florida. These women developed hybrid subjectivities that combined both global and local conceptions of agency as they navigated issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, and nation for fluid ways of being.
