Emily Jackson

Emily Lynn Jackson is a PhD student in French and Francophone Studies and Mellon Cluster Fellow in Asian Studies at Northwestern University. She received her B.A. in Music and B.A. in Modern Language Studies: French from Texas Christian University in 2022. Her undergraduate thesis advanced a queer re-reading of autofictional literary works from French Indochina including Marguerite Duras’s L’amant and Kim Lefèvre’s Métisse Blanche, analyzing the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and coloniality as identities affecting the marginalization and resilience of the works’ protagonists. Her current research interests include (post-)colonial studies, gender and sexuality studies, twentieth-century studies, Francophone women authors, and literature and authors of the Francophone Asia Pacific.
