I’m Maxine Savage (they/them)

I am a doctoral candidate in Scandinavian Studies at the University of Washington. My research explores queer history and temporality, racialized sexuality and gender, and climate and place-based discourses in contemporary Nordic literature and cinema. My work has appeared in Lambda Nordica, PARSE Journal, Ós – The Journal, Seedings and elsewhere. I am also a Translation Assistant Editor for Anomaly and the Box Office Assistant for the Seattle Queer Film Festival. Supported by the Fulbright Commission and the American-Scandinavian Foundation, I have collaborated with the Northwest Film Forum, Taste of Iceland, and The Poetry Brothel-Reykjavík.
