Isobel Carnegie

Isobel is a MA candidate at Ryerson’s Literatures of Modernity program and a graduate of the University of Toronto with an honours degree in English and Sexual Diversity Studies. Her interests lie in telling stories and amplifying voices, Canadian literature, and Toronto’s queer history (and future!). This summer she is the managing editor of the White Wall Review at Ryerson University and working on a research project run by her supervisor on the Gay Communtiy Dance Committee. Her zoom meetings are regularly interrupted by a needy seven year old labradoodle named Bilbo.
