Tine Kempenaers works as assistant and doctoral researcher at the English Literature section of Ghent University.
Tine’s research project focuses on trans and genderqueer poetry and explores the use of language and poetic form in relation to concerns of embodiment and legibility. Furthermore, it examines the forms in which trans and genderqueer poetry is published or shared, as these poems appear not only in conventional forms like poetry collections or literary magazines, but are also strongly represented in zines, social media platforms, slam poetry, and other forms of performance. In this way the project aims to examine how the poetic concerns of trans and genderqueer poetry are related to form and how they are translated into practice, and vice versa.
Tine also teaches on the course English Literature 1, in which students are introduced to literary analysis in English prose, drama, and poetry.
