Stephanie M. Selvick specializes in Anglophone African literature, postcolonial theory, and queer studies. She has published articles on postcolonial novels from both Zimbabwe and Egypt, including “Beyond the Binary: Same-Sex Desire and Gender Defiance in Tsitsi Dangarembga’s Nervous Conditions” in the Journal of Postcolonial Writing, and “Queer (Im)possibilities: Alaa Al Aswany’s and Wahid Hamed’s The Yacoubian Building” in Christopher Pullen’s edited collection Transnational Identity and Media.

Stephanie has been the recipient of a Center for the Humanities Dissertation Fellowship, as well as an archival research grant through the University of Miami. The latter enabled her to locate primary materials at the Gay and Lesbian Archives in Johannesburg, South Africa. These materials helped form her current book project, “Love in a Time of Trauma: Imagining Queer Female Sexualities in Post-Apartheid South Africa.”
