Tine Kempenaers works as assistant and doctoral researcher at the English Literature section of Ghent University.
Tine’s research focuses on trans 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 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 contextualize trans poetry in the literary-economic context and to examine how the poetic concerns of trans 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.
Students with a research interest for gender, sexuality, or other social justice related topics are very welcome to contact Tine for support and guidance.
