Morgan Bimm

Morgan Bimm is a PhD student in the department of Gender, Feminist, and Women’s Studies at York University. Her research interests include integrating fandom studies and feminist theory, specifically as they relate to performative taste cultures mediated by technology and new media. She launched and facilitates her department’s inaugural seminar series on critical queer and feminist pedagogies, which won funding through York’s Graduate Student Wellness Initiative in recognition of the seminar series’ contributions to graduate student community.


Recognising that teaching is care work, the authors unsettle neoliberal discussions of resilience and survival. They argue for femme pedagogy, a trauma-informed approach to education in which vulnerability, healing, and community are vital to academic spaces.

Following ‘Fugitive Spaces’ workshops, the authors of this zine present a creative collage of responses to the proposed pedagogy of bringing marginalised voices to the centre of educational debates.
