Margaret Galvan received her PhD in English with a film studies certificate from CUNY Graduate Center in 2016. She is currently at work on a book, In Visible Archives, under contract with the Manifold Scholarship series of the University of Minnesota Press, which traces a genealogy of queer theory in 1980s feminism through representations of sexuality in visual culture. In addition to the book, she will develop an affiliated digital archive and curricula on the Manifold Scholarship digital platform. Her research spans over a dozen archives and was funded by nine grants over five years. Her published work can be found in journals like WSQ: Women’s Studies Quarterly, Archive Journal, and Australian Feminist Studies.
