Research / academic work

Aleksandra Kamińska holds a Ph.D. from the University of Warsaw, Poland. Her scholarship is anchored in gender studies (particularly queer theory), popular culture, auto/biography studies, American studies, and comics studies. In her doctoral work, she examined the figure of a girl in American culture after the 2008 economic crisis, using frameworks of failure and disrupted temporality/queer time, arguing that the new image of girlhood stands in opposition to the over-present girl power discourse and visions of adulthood that modern Western society invests in. She was a Fulbright Scholar at Columbia University (2018-2019). Aleksandra Kamińska is a member of the Gender/Sexuality Research Group at the American Studies Center, University of Warsaw, where she teaches courses on American literature, life narratives and automedia, gender studies, comics, and youth culture.
