Dr. Angela Facundo is an assistant adjunct professor at Queens University. She is a recipient of numerous federal awards from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council for her research on sexuality and literary fiction as antidotes to fascism. Her book, Oscillations of Literary Theory: The Paranoid Imperative and Queer Reparative, was published in 2016 by SUNY Press. Facundo's research explores the relationship between sexuality, knowledge formation and its institutionalization, and narratives of attachment (to texts, to others, to versions of the self). She is also on the Board of Directors for Pride at Work Canada in the role of Director of Thought Leadership.
