jAMIEE COOK

She/Her/Hers

Jamiee Cook is a doctoral student at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is interested in queer and feminist political activism and its appearance in 20th century literature, particularly literature by or about those who reside at the intersections of identity – queer women, women of color, and trans* and nonbinary writers, among others. Jamiee is interested in tracing the emergence of modern queer identities, considering the merits and drawbacks of political coalitionism, and thinking through the exclusionary politics that plagued the LGBTQ and Feminist activism of the 20th century. Jamiee also works for UCSB’s Women, Gender, and Sexual Equity department, providing intersectional advocacy and support for marginalized students.
