Hi, my name is Lauren and I am a PhD student in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Chicago. I think stuff, read stuff, and write — occasionally — mostly about blackness, sound, vernacular, and a genre I lovingly call garbage pop culture. My dissertation is a mystery, but I'm looking for a Black idiom (send tips: laur.m.jackson[at]gmail.com). You may have seen me cited as "blogger" in Critical Perspectives on Veganism. I am not a blogger.
