A Bit About Me

My name is Samantha Pinson Wrisley and I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Emory University and Fellow at the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism. My research unfolds at the intersection of affect theory, feminist and queer theory, contemporary sexual practices, and far-right studies. My work is invested in understanding how feminism metabolizes the fraught reality of (hetero)sexual politics in the wake of discursive trends such as #MeToo and political attacks such as the repeal of Roe v. Wade. I am also interested in how feminism itself generates affective sub-movements such as heteropessimism and trans-exclusionary feminisms, which deeply impact heterorelationality writ large.
