My name is Nico Mara-McKay (they/them) and I am a SSHRC-funded PhD student at the University of Toronto in History with a collaborative specialization in Sexual Diversity Studies. My research focuses on nonnormative gender expressions in late Medieval Europe and falls within the emerging field of Medieval Trans Studies. I’m also interested in queer histories, witchcraft, monsters, and visual and material history.
I love giving talks, and I’ve spoken at the Art Gallery of Ontario about the visual history of tarot, Canzine about the history of magical zines, and for the Toronto District School Board about witchy artifacts.
Interested in working together? Please get in touch.
