Research overview

My research explores consensual sibling incest in contemporary fiction, TV, and film.  Arguing that its popularity speaks to more than an illicit fascination but is a pervasive, discursive phenomenon, I consider how the modern reframing of the trope reflects contemporary uncertainties surrounding normative sexualities and familial relationships
