Carlos Gabriel Kelly

PhD in English Candidate



Carlos Kelly is a first-generation Mexican-American and first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of English specializing in Digital Humanities. His research seeks to engage with the liminal spaces associated with video games and online platforms through a Latinx perspective. Although he wants to focus on the digital aspects of literature, he also plans to minor in both film studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Apart from his duties as a student, he is also the current LASER coordinator working with Professor Frederick Aldama. His professional goals include publishing books of poetry, a book-length dissertation, and to gain a tenure-track position where he plans to teach large lecture hall style courses.
