Alison Sperling

Alison Sperling is finishing her PhD in literature and cultural theory at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, where she will defend her dissertation “Weird Modernism” in spring 2017. Her research interrogates embodied modes of temporality within literary modernism by theorizing “the weird” across the period, looking to wide-ranging theoretical frames and methodologies to think about the body, including queer theory, disability studies, ecofeminism, and critical animal and plant studies. She has recent articles appearing in the journals Girlhood StudiesRhizomes, and Paradoxa, as well as in the edited collection Lovecraft Annual.
