Biography 

Shannon Stride is a first-year student in the MA program in Art History at Concordia University. Shannon completed a BA with Combined Honours in Gender and Women’s Studies and Sociology at the University of King’s College. Throughout her undergraduate degree, Shannon focused her research on women photographers who transgressed gender norms, capturing abject, grotesque, and monstrous self-portraits. She hopes to expand her research on the relationship between gender and abjection in photography at the graduate level.

Shannon’s MA research is supported through the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Master’s Scholarship (SSHRC) for 2019-2020.
