Caroline Cheung

Caroline Cheung is a PhD Candidate in English with a graduate certificate in Gender, Women’s, & Sexuality Studies at the University of Iowa. She works at the intersections of women of color feminisms, theories of state violence, transformative justice and prison abolitionism. She researches the ways myths of white supremacy and proximities to whiteness uphold the prison-industrial complex. She believes that the creative and imaginative work of literature serve as revolutionary gestures, providing both experiences of and frameworks for transformative justice and community accountability/healing. Dreaming and fighting with others who know that scholarship and theory happen everywhere, Caroline is always seeking ways to strengthen radical community and weaken the institutions that harm us all.
