Hyeree Ellis (she/her) is a PhD student in the Department of English, specializing in Old and Middle English literature. She received her MA in English from UIUC, and her BAs in Sociology and English Literature from DePauw University. Driven by her curiosities with early global connections, Hyeree is interested in premodern critical race studies, affect theory, and gender and sexuality studies and the ways in which these considerations intersect with the human/nonhuman. She also has particular interests in tears, emotions, and community in medieval England.
