ALICIA ANDRZEJEWSKI received a PhD from the English program at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She holds an MA from Appalachian State University. Her research focuses on representations of pregnancy and fertility control in early modern drama, bringing together feminist, queer, and affect theory in order to work through how “failed” pregnancies were and are imagined and understood. She is also a contributing writer for Medical and Health Humanities and Visible Pedagogy and her essay, “Blue Roses and Other Queer Energies in Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie,” was recently published in The Tennessee Williams Annual Review.
