Alba Clevenger

Thesis supervisor: Jeremy Stolow

Alba is a trilingual settler and first-generation Canadian raised in the Bow Valley (Treaty 7), traditional lands of the Îyârhe Nakoda, Blackfoot, Tsuut’ina, Ktunaxa, Secwépemc and Mountain Cree.

She holds an undergraduate in Gender Studies from the University of Victoria, with an exchange year at Utrecht University. For her Capstone project, she studied the affective resonances of feminist witchcraft techniques through phenomenological and interview-based methodologies. Her previous research engages with post-feminism in digital spaces through Audrey Wollen’s Sad Girl Theory, Canadian media’s racialization of cannabis legality, and the affective qualities of feminist anger from illocutionary silencing.

Alba co-facilitates collective study through reading groups on a variety of topics including sound studies, the undercommons, and love as a close reading. Non-academically she has a background in community radio, podcast, and event production (live and virtual).

For her graduate studies at Concordia, she is looking to deepen her understanding of sound, critical theory, and ritual as they intersect with media technologies and digital space.
