Stacie Cruz

Stacie is currently a third-year Ph.D. student at Rice University, researching in the field of queer/disability studies. More specifically, she focuses on the relationships between the human body and the nonhuman world, and the ways in which the ostensibly human body is necessarily embedded within various nonhuman materialities. For example, in bodily experiences of illness and disease, and how that experience gets mediated through one’s gender, sexuality, race, et cetera.
