Natalie Leduc

Natalie Leduc is a PhD candidate in the Department of English and of the Book History & Print Culture collaborative program at the University of Toronto. Their SSHRC-funded dissertation, The Cyborg and Something Else: Kinship, Poetics, and Resistance Under(Data) Colonialism and (Data) Capitalism, investigates how cyborg writing—a term they (re)developed to describe a type of digital writing that challenges intersecting bigotries—is a form of literary activism that problematizes exclusionary and problematic notions of the human. Prior to their studies, they spent time working in Los Angeles as a pop and locker. They are an original member of the poetry performance ensemble Rhombus 19 and the creator of the Zine Apocalips.
