Chels Fabian’s research explores intersections of queerness and trauma in contemporary anglophone fiction, with specific attention paid to the experiences of polysexual-identified women. In particular, they are interested in investigating the emotional trauma-informed expressions of bisexual and pansexual queerness and how these expressions are impacted by intimate relationships and family ties.
