Biography, Education and Training

Rebecca L. Gross is a writer, researcher, educator, and zine-maker. She's interested in contemporary diasporic literatures that address intergenerational memory, trauma, and cultural myths. Rebecca hopes to research how these literatures mobilize solidarity movements and social change. Before coming to UCSC, Rebecca received her B.A. in English from the University of Washington, and an M.A. in English Literature with an emphasis on Jewish Studies from Loyola Marymount University. Outside of academia, Rebecca runs Off Menu Press, a zine publishing space for people who identify with canonically-excluded gender(s). She also drums in a punk band called Lady Starshine.
