Ayanna Dozier

Ayanna Dozier

Ayanna Dozier is a first year doctoral student in the department of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies at McGill, she obtained her undergraduate degree in Art History and French at Chapman University and her graduate degree at New York University in the department of Media, Culture, and Communication. Ayanna first encountered horror during her formative years through the work of Stephen King when she saw the television two-part movie It at the age of four, followed by Misery at age five and Carrie at age seven. Horror, for Ayanna, offers generous explorations of viewing and experiencing queerness, as performed through bodily difference, on screen. She actively seeks to incorporate the genre in her research on any level all while negotiating her still prevalent and persistent nightmares of Pennywise; on a completely unrelated note, she posses a mild, not disruptive, case of coulrophobia. She currently resides in Montréal.
