Lauren Randall

Recognition Year: 

Lauren Randall is a graduate teaching assistant and will earn her MA in English Literature this spring. Before that, Lauren worked as a secretary, a server, a bookseller, and an amateur gardener-for-hire. Her partner, Brian, is a secondary-level English teacher, and he and Lauren enjoy their frequent conversations about finding new ways to examine literature and challenge themselves as teachers. As an undergraduate, Lauren worked as an editor of The Fogdog Review and as an intern for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. She graduated Cum Laude with her bachelor's degree in 2019 and returned (remotely) to Wright State for graduate study in August of 2020. Since then, Lauren’s research has centered on post-1945 filmic representations of literary texts, primarily written by queer authors, and situating those texts in relevant theoretical and historical contexts. Lauren hopes to employ a combination of academic and activist sensibilities in her future research endeavors regarding countercultural presences in literature and film. She will soon have the opportunity to live out that hope as she begins a doctoral program in the fall of 2022.
