Author Biography

Celiese Lypka, University of Calgary

Celiese Lypka is a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of English at the University of Calgary, specializing in British modernism, women’s writing, and the theoretical framework of Deleuze and Guattari.  Her dissertation investigates productive modes of divergent femininity found within modernist texts, which reorient the anxiety usually attached to the female body toward a mobilizing affect, where marginalized characters openly resist prescribed roles from patriarchal structures.
