Her dissertation, “Disambiguating Dystopia: Readjusting the Critical Lens on Twentieth-Century Dystopian Literature,” analyzes the form and function of the dystopian novel as well as the imbricational relationship between academia and the public when it comes to the issues dystopian literature so often explores.
