MA Candidate

Taylor has lived in the shadow of New York City in nearby New Jersey all her life and she has always been drawn to the city’s vibrant and diverse literary and artistic communities. As an artist, writer, and scholar, she hopes to be part of an ongoing shift in the arts that welcomes more diverse, nuanced, and intersectional female identities. She uses affect theory and feminist theories to understand the emotional attachments we form to culture and how different textual and visual cultures can offer validation, hope and a sense of community various intersectional female identities, specifically queer and neurodivergent identities. After completing a BA in English and Art History at Drew University, she decided that Gallatin was the perfect place to expand her knowledge of theory and practical skills to help her think more critically about inclusivity in art museums and young adult publishing imprints.
