Hannah Jamet-Lange

Thesis supervisor: Stefanie Duguay

Hannah Jamet-Lange (she/they) received her BA in Communication Studies with a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality. Centred in affect and queer theory, their research interests revolve around conceptions of happiness, intimate publics, and queer activisms, with a focus on discourses around music and emotions that are mobilized on social media. Specifically, the thesis examines the formation of networked intimate publics on TikTok, how these reflect on queer youth’s anxieties related to (hetero)normative ideas of happiness, and what their political potential may be.

Thesis title or subject: “sad girlies how are we doing rn??”: Conceptions of happiness in engagements with ‘Sad Girl Music’ on TikTok (Working title)
