Hello everyone! My name is Kim Lacey and I'm very excited to participate in the FSDW. I'm an Assistant Professor of English at Saginaw Valley State University. My research interests include critical theory, gender, contemporary art, and memory studies. The project I'll be workshopping deals with portrayals of female detectives and their "alternative" partners (think: Castle and Detective Beckett).  I'm slightly obsessed with spy books (and I'll take recommendations if you have them!) and am anxiously awaiting the second season of Orange is the New Black (only a few days to go!). Talk more soon!



well we aren't in the same group but I'll be following along as I LOVE Castle and others in print/media forms :) 




Hi Kim! We're not in the same group, but I'd be very interested to talk with you about the intersection of memory studies and women's/feminist/gender studies. They are two separate threads in my research interests and feel really divergent for me, so I'd love to know more about your work. 


MIchelle: It's the perfect mix of guilty pleasure and research! Let's talk!

Linda: Please! It would be fun to talk about those two!
