Gerson, Sage

Sage Gerson is a PhD candidate in the English Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her dissertation is primarily concerned with what textual electrified imaginaries tell readers about the entangled and co-constituting relationship between electrical power and sociocultural/political power. Her work focuses on the ways that U.S. electrical infrastructure and literary infrastructure are always already imbricated. She has a forthcoming article (out in 2020) on electricity theft in Invisible Man.

Sage is the 2019-2020 graduate researcher for the English Department’s Hemispheric South/s Initiative. During 2018-19, Sage was a fellow for UCSB's Mellon Sawyer Seminar on Energy Justice in a Global perspective, as well the graduate researcher for the English Department’s Literature and Environment Initiative.
