Sarah Beck

I am an interdisciplinary rhetorical scholar concerned with the lives of queer, trans, and lesbian women and non-binary folks, as well as embodied research methods. 

My scholarly work focuses on the realm of the everyday and how private and enclave spaces support and enable social justice and change. I utilize feminist and queer theorizing to argue for the importance of these everyday spaces and their potential to enable communities to thrive and develop inventive ways of responding to the current social and political landscape. My work is mixed-method in nature, combining textual analysis, ethnographic fieldwork, qualitative interviews, and arts/practice-based methods.  

Current and past projects have examined a summer camp for queer women, domestic spaces, queer digital culture, and the use of reciprocal IVF in lesbian couples.
