BA, 2019, Fundamentals: Issues and Texts, University of Chicago
MA, 2021, Interdisciplinary Humanities, University of Chicago
Sasha’s (they/he) MA thesis focused on This Place:150 Years Retold and its position and function as simultaneously a young adult educational, historical, and speculative futurist resistance work. He is particularly interested in how Indigenous futurist texts explore embodiment as a locus of racialized biomedical/state violence and as a site of resistance, especially the works of Métis authors Chelsea Vowel and Cherie Dimaline.
His broader academic interests include the intersection of digital and physical presence, trauma studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, queerness, and science/tech studies. Beyond campus, Sasha loves to garden, rock climb, and write poetry.
