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.

These materials helped form her current book project, “Love in a Time of Trauma: Imagining Queer Female Sexualities in Post-Apartheid South Africa.”
