About

Hi! My name is Arjun Dhanjal. I’m a grad student in the Joint Graduate Program in Communication & Culture at York University and Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.

My current research focuses on theorizing the unsolicited ‘dick pic’ in gay racialized contexts. How, I ask, does the dick pic function as a technology of control? In broader terms, my research lies at the intersection between queer theory, pornography studies, and the digital humanities.

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