About

Hi! My name is Arjun Dhanjal. I’m a grad student at York University in Toronto, Canada. Right now, pursuing my MA in Communication & Culture.

My current research focuses on the biopolitical intersections of the ‘cyborg’ body in science fiction film/literature and trans embodiment of and identification with the self. Specifically, how does the interchangeability of cyborg body parts impact trans understandings of gender dysphoria when negotiating some kind of self-identity?

In my spare time, you’ll probably find me tinkering with technology, browsing reddit, or buried nose-deep in a piece of feminist theory or philosophy with a beer in hand.
