Department and School

Sheena (she/they) is an essayist, humorist, and doctoral student in the School of Journalism. Her research sits at the intersection of comedy, identity discourse, black studies, and social movements in the US and Germany. She is particularly interested in humor’s role in the cultural production of racial and social identities and its ability to function as a tool of resistance that exposes systemic injustices, widening and provoking discussions of political issues. Recipient of the Dave Family Humor Studies award, she is a 2022 Kimbilio Fellow and a Lambda Literary Emerging LGBTQ Voices Fellow. Sheena holds an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School, an MS in Higher Education Governance from the University of Helsinki (Finland), and a BA in German, Marketing, and Gender Studies from New York University.
