Matt Brim

Matt Brim, PhD, Associate Professor of Queer Studies and English at the College of Staten Island, has been selected as a Distinguished CUNY Fellow at the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) for the fall of 2019. His project, titled Poor Queer Studies, offers a class- and race-based analysis of the field of queer studies, arguing that the discipline should be reoriented away from elitist and exclusionary educational institutions and toward poor and working-class students and underfunded public colleges.

Former CSI faculty recipients include Michael Paris, Ashley Dawson, Ava Chin, Patricia Brooks, Christina Tortora, and Ismael Garcia Colon.
