3. Lush, Vivid, and Strange. [Anna Wilson.]

Anna Wilson recently completed a PhD at the University of Toronto. She’ll be starting at Harvard as an assistant professor next year. But erase all thoughts of a dry tweedy scholar from your mind. Anna is one of those scholars whose work and whose life intertwine—bringing together medieval mystics, queer theory, and fanfiction.

Her five songs:

Graceland by Paul Simon.
The End by The Doors.
To Be Alone with You by Sufjan Stevens.
On the Radio by Regina Spektor.
Wait for It from Hamilton.

Show notes.

The fanvid discussed is “This is How It Works” by Lim.
