Matthew Abbey


I am a Teaching Fellow in Cultural Studies in the School of Fine Art, History of Art, and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds. My interests surround migration and border studies; political violence and colonialism; art and the social imagination; queer theory and speculative thought; and the links between machine learning and knowledge production. I have published articles in several peer-reviewed journals, including Sexualities, European Journal of Cultural Studies, Contention, Identities, Porn Studies, and Visual Studies.
