Katherine Steelman (Ph.D. student, UC San Diego, Ethnic studies) is an English language instructor, cultural historian and writer. Broadly, her work examines how sexually non-normative spaces are socially and materially constructed in Tijuana, BC, MX. She takes up US cultural production, as well as the Tijuanense response to the US's narrative of the city and it's communities that might be called queer. This work juxtaposes critical analyses of cultural texts with ethnographic interviews. Currently, she is working on a project that engages cultural representations of Haiti in the US and Mexico, as well as collaborative ethnographic work with Haitian migrants in Tijuana.
