Linda Chavers
Linda Chavers is a first-year doctoral student in Harvard University's African and African-American Studies department with a focus on English Literature. A Washington, D.C native, she received her B.A. in Cultural Studies at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study in 2003. From there, she set out to be a fabulous writer on all things fabulous and amazing. That translated to stints as a broke fact-checker at The Nation magazine, a very enthusiastic editorial assistant at The New York Times Magazine, and a reluctant assistant editor at Vogue Magazine. She finally realized she needed some more credentials so she packed up to Cambridge. Academically, she is interested in violence as it pertains to identity-making, sexuality, and the body; she also does book reviewing and narrative pieces.
