Bio

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Hello! My name is Ariel Fried and I am currently a PhD candidate here at University of Missouri-Columbia. My primary research interests include Victorian novels, especially sensation fiction, and 19th century medical and pseudoscientific discourses. I most often engage with these literatures with attention to insights provided by post-structuralist, new-materialist, feminist, queer, and/or affective theories. Ultimately, I believe in the active power of literature to shape, disrupt, and enrich our understandings of our own experiences beyond these texts, and provide possibilities for new ways of being and belonging with each other.
