I'm a musicology PhD student at Pitt and have a master's from Temple University in Music History. My first publication, "Suck on My Balls Bitch: A Paradigm Shift," will be released as a chapter in an edited volume titled Diva: Feminism and Fierceness from Pop to Hip-Hop. The book is scheduled for publication in 2021 by Bloomsbury Academic. Although I was slated to present on this topic to the International Association for the Study of Popular Music in May, that conference has been postponed until 2021.
I'm also presenting at the Cultural Studies Association conference - virtually - in May, the paper is entitled "Be Careful with me: Female Rappers, Vulnerability, and #metoo."
