Dr. Sarah Brophy

Angus McBean's Queer Domestic Surrealism & a Prehistory of Selfie Culture

Sarah Brophy is Professor of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. Her current research is in two strands. With the support of a SSHRC Insight Grant, she is studying the emerging, often vexed relationship between digital self-portraiture and critical feminist, mad, and crip artists’ multi-platform projects. She is also researching forms of sociability, intimacy, cosmopolitan dreaming, and critical cultural memory generated in Britain since 1945 in Black, queer, working-class, and feminist literature and culture.
