  • Kathryn addresses timely and urgent questions about environmental justice, particularly leaning into the intersection of class, race, and environmental contamination.
  • Kathryn also denounces the violent history of white supremacy and capitalist hegemony, and the unequal, unethical, treatment of BIPOC and poor bodies in a western biomedical context. 
  • Combines theory, poetry, and photography; it is personal, lyrical, and stylistically experimental while also being rigorously researched. 
  • Kathryn was an In the Stacks fellow at CHP!
