Megan Feifer (she/her/hers) is a Teacher Scholar in Residence at the bell hooks center at Berea College. She earned her B.A. and M.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin and a Ph.D. in Literary Studies with a minor in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies from Louisiana State University. Her research and teaching interests focus on the counterarchives contemporary writers produce in response to what Anne McClintock terms the “official ghosting,” or inability/unwillingness of nations to confront and account for the “past.” She is coeditor of a volume titled Narrating, History, Home, and Dyaspora: Critical Essays on Edwidge Danticat University Press of Mississippi, and author of the article, The Remembering of Bones: Working Through Trauma and the Counter-Archive in Edwidge Danticat’s Farming of Bones. She is the co-founding President of the Edwidge Danticat Society. Both her pedagogy and research center on hooks’ critical examination of trans border systems of domination. During her tenure at the bell hooks center, she will co-edit a volume of critical essays on hooks' Teaching Trilogies and digitize the bell hooks papers as part of the bellhooksarchive.com digital humanities project.
