A.W. Strouse (Lang '08) is a poet and a queer scholar of medieval poetry. Strouse holds a doctorate in English and teaches as a part‐time professor at the City University of New York and at The New School. Strouse's publications include many academic articles on topics in medieval literature, as well as four books of poetry. Recent projects include a public sculpture in Iceland that queerly reinterpreted a Viking magical technology, along with a short, lyrical film about rural life in Appalachian Pennsylvania (with original country‐folk music written by Strouse). Forthcoming this year is Gender Trouble Couplets, a rendition of Judith Butler´s Gender Trouble re‐written into rhyming couplets.
