Mikhel Proulx is the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC) Postdoctoral Fellow in the Vulnerable Media Lab. Mikhel is a historian of contemporary Canadian art and digital culture. He recently defended his doctoral dissertation—a study of network-based art by Canadian women—which was awarded the 2022 Leonardo Journal top thesis prize. His research considers network culture from queer-feminist and settler-colonial perspectives, and has been recently presented at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute; the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York; Goldsmith’s College, London; Yale University; and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York. In recent projects, he has collaborated with the artists Margaret Dragu, Skawennati, Anna Boghiguian, Vera Frenkel, Anna Banana, and Rita McKeough. His forthcoming book—part of the Queer Films Classics series—considers how Bob Fosse’s 1972 Cabaret represents Queer sexualities of Weimar Berlin.
