Research Interests: ,

Filipa Calado is a doctoral candidate in the English program at the Graduate Center. She focuses on queer memoirs and compositional writing, theories of cognition and aesthetics, and digital methodologies. Currently, she is interested in conversations about digital methods and hermeneutics, especially those that engage affect and feeling within a queer context. She is also interested in histories of composition and experimental writing by queer authors, and in the digitization and transcription of print artifacts. As an English instructor, she incorporates social reading practices, particularly digital annotation, to teach close reading. Most recently, she uses and develops annotation tools that engage affect and feeling as part of larger critical interventions in the classroom.
