Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr Jessie Lymn’s current research program considers non-normative material in collections, arguing for a consideration of non-linearity, disruption, and productive effects. This currently includes zines and fanzines in institutional and non-institutional collections, LGBTI+ and queer material in gallery, library, archives and museum (GLAM) sector institutions, and regional memories. Jessie's focus on non-normative material in collections reflects her research path to date, and builds an understanding of practices and content that are not part of the grand narrative of regional and national identity.
