She is interested in exploring how bodies materialize through biopolitical, racial, environmental, and economic systems. Specifically, she hopes to study legal texts and speculative fiction that center non-“normative” bodies and open up radical imaginations of our current/future worlds. Jae-Min graduated from Bowdoin College, where she majored in Political Theory and minored in English.
