About Megan Sibbett

Megan Sibbett received a B.S. in English from Utah Valley State College and an M.S. in American Studies from Utah State University, before pursuing a Ph.D. in English Literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio.  She specializes in Border studies, Chicana Feminism, and 20th Century American Literature.  Her dissertation, “Intimate Terrorisms: Remapping the War on Terror through Multi-Facial Feminist Theory, Disidentifactory Queer Performance, and Queer Transnational Activism,” which she will defend this Spring, explores how mainstream tropes of “terrorism” are grounded in systems of racism, sexism, and heteronormativity in the U.S.
