Jenny  Evang

Jenny’s research uses queer theory to address broader questions of knowledge production. She is particularly interested in rethinking the stakes of queer historiography and temporality. Her research focuses on how we produce and use archives in a broad sense, including national and institutional archives, contemporary media archives, and the status and the notion of the archive as such. Her current project explores the relation between Scandinavian history, the rhetoric of gender equality, and homonationalism. Before coming to Stanford, Jenny earned a BA in Physics and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brown University.
