Spencer Fricard

  • Graduate Student - French

Spencer is a Ph.D. Candidate and Pre-Doctoral Mellon Fellow (AY 23/24) in French Studies and Transgender Theory (under the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies umbrella). Inspired by and relying on her own coming of gender and transition, Spencer’s dissertation brings to light the ways in which French queer artists make use of visual media (films and graphic novels) to convey narratives of gender variance and transness without being restricted by the linguistic binary of the French language.
