FORA.tv Speaker - Gayle Salamon
Gayle Salamon is Assistant Professor of English at Princeton University. She received a Ph.D. in rhetoric from the University of California-Berkeley, where she wrote her dissertation on Assuming a Body: Transgenderism and Rhetorics of Materiality. She has held a research fellowship at Brown University's Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women, and has taught a broad spectrum of courses at UC-Berkeley on the topics of embodiment and gender.
Her new research project at Princeton will explore the role that proprioception and chronic pain can play in shaping a bodily sense of self. Her teaching this year will include courses on themes of "passing" in modern literature, and transgender theory. Salamon holds the new LGBT Studies Fellowship, funded by an endowment from the Fund for Reunion, the bisexual, transgendered, gay and lesbian alumni association of Princeton.
