Caoimhe Harlock, Graduate Student of English and Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies  

Caoimhe Harlock

Office Location: Allen Building
Email Address: ca.harlock@duke.edu


Caoimhe A. Harlock is a doctoral candidate in English at Duke University, with certificate concentrations in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, and College Teaching. She studies 20th-century and contemporary American fiction – especially fiction by women and queer authors – as well as America’s long history of supernatural reckonings with gender as staged by writers, artists, and feminist and queer political movements. Her critical training sits at the intersection of cultural criticism and feminist/queer/trans studies, and she has taught seminars on manifesto writing as well as genre fiction, fiction of trauma, and the monstrous feminine. As an openly transgender woman in academia, she also works to translate research into praxis through ongoing engagement with LGBTQ+ organizations in her local community.

Research Interests: 20th- and 21st-century American literature and culture; queer theory; transgender studies; women’s writing; queer writing; feminism and feminist history; kinship; ontology of the body; modernism; genre fiction; witchcraft and pagan spirituality; the supernatural; monstrosity; comics; film; creative writing
