My name is B Lee Aultman. I am a political theorist living in Brooklyn. I earned my Ph.D. (2018) in Political Science from The Graduate Center, CUNY, where I pursued a major concentration in American politics and a minor concentration in political theory. My dissertation, Feeling as Knowing, was a multidisciplinary study of the ways in which ordinary affect and self-knowledge assemble and found the narrative accounts of gender non-normativity. I am currently working on a book project entitled A Politics of the Trans Ordinary (Albany, NY: SUNY Press) where I examine life-making practices and the political entanglements of everyday life for trans communities. My areas of interest emphasize trans studies, Black feminist studies, affect theory, phenomenology, and Marxism. My work has appeared in TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly,Wagadu: A Journal of Transnational Women’s and Gender Studies, Writing from Below, and LGBTQ Politics: A Critical Reader.
