Sabrina Lee is a PhD candidate in the Department of English. Her research interests include global modernism, critical theory, and ethnic studies. Her dissertation, tentatively titled “Otherworldly Modernism: Magic, Mediums, and Coloniality,” examines how North Atlantic modernist authors and artists extracted and enclosed so-called magical practices from the colonies to remake their art, ideas, themselves, and their conception of what it means to be human. Sabrina was a Nicholson Graduate Fellow and attended a seminar on “Magic” during the 2021 School for Criticism and Theory at Cornell.
