Robert Cremins is a queer and gender non-binary settler PhD student and Graduate Teaching Associate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the Ohio State University. After completing a BA in Religious Studies and a BS in Social Work from the University of Tennessee, they went on to complete an MA in Philosophy at The New School for Social Research with a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies and a concentration in Psychoanalysis. Cremins’ research specifically focuses on the complicities between settler colonialism and constructions of gender and sexuality. Their research genealogically interrogates how ostensibly universal discourses of gender and sexuality are constructed and employed to justify settler colonial and imperialist expansion narrated as progress.
