Chiara Giovanni

Chiara Giovanni is a PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature at Stanford University. Her doctoral project is a multidisciplinary essay collection that weaves together a combination of ethnography, literature, music and other media in order to explore performance and lived contexts in which femme of color people seek out the affirmation of their gendered subject positions. She writes about the role of the follow in queer Latinx dance communities, the submissive femme in BDSM contexts, and intercorporeal care during the pandemic.
 
She received previous training from the University of Oxford, writes at tinyletter.com/carambalache, and can be reached at chiarag@stanford.edu or @carambalache.
