Biographical Notes

Sara Perryman is pursuing her doctorate in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, Rutgers, after receiving her B.A. at the University of California, Berkeley (Stillness As Horizon: Re-thinking Transnational Trans-Subjectivity and the Master Trope of Mobility—senior thesis on gender, sexuality, and passing in contemporary Iranian film). Her current work examines post-industrial risk culture in Detroit and how ordinary objects and affect shape the contours of urban landscapes in ways that are always already gendered, raced, classed, and sexed. Using Derridean, Deleuzian, and postcolonial theoretical frameworks, she approaches the city as an ecological sensorium and attempts to move beyond ‘assembly line’ narratives that structure (and limit) our understanding of futurity by paying close attention to the ways that ‘empty space,’ ‘inactivity,’ and urban ‘decay’ are deeply productive and exciting sites of potential change.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
