Evelyn Ramiel is a PhD candidate in the environmental history of Japan at York University. Xeir research focuses on “optical” history—animation studies, photographic representations of nature, microscopy, the politics of queer and trans visibility, the influence of nonhuman microscopic organisms in human bodies—and weird, intimate stories xey find in the archive. Evelyn has also worked on public history walking tours for the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Xey’ll figure out a dissertation topic someday.
