Graduate Student in Performance Studies with D.E. in Feminist Theory and Research
Amber Muller is a wayward Canuck. After graduating from the University of Alberta with a BA (Honours) in Drama she played at theatre making before moving to Europe to pursue a double Masters in International Performance Research at the University of Amsterdam and the University of Warwick. Her research focus lies at the intersection of performance and sexuality with a special interest in sexual economies, erotic capital, collisions of praxis in pop culture feminism, gender politics, creative protest, and embodied resistance. She enjoys popular media, mixing “high” theory with “low” culture, troubling currents of power, and being a feminist killjoy. Currently in the 2nd year of her PhD in Performance Studies, Amber is also working towards designated emphases in Feminist Theory and Research and Critical Theory. Publications include 'Virtual Communities and Translation into Physical Reality in the “It Gets Better Project”' in the Journal of Media Practice and “What's 'Slut' Got to Do With It?: Language, Translation, and Transformation of a Global Protest Movement” in Jaarboek Vrouwengeschiedens (The History of Women Yearbook).
