Here is a brief presentation of some of the research I conducted this past summer. There's a lot more where this came from so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything in further detail.
Auditor of the Dublin University History Society, School of English, Trinity College Dublin
I am an English Literature and History student in Trinity College Dublin. My research under the Laidlaw Programme regards Tony Kushner's 1991 play Angels in America, and its role in deconstructing the homogenous queer identity. This summer, I will carry out close textual analysis of the play, consult criticism of Kushner's work, and apply leading queer literary theorists' work to Angels in America. In Summer 2021, I hope to travel to the US to conduct a study of Kushner's work in diversifying understandings of what it means to be queer, and organise a theatre workshop of the play's key scenes.
