The Toronto Quarterly is very pleased to welcome Jessie Travis to the position of intern. She will be contributing book reviews and attending many of the literary events going on in the city of Toronto.
Jessie is a 24-year-old perpetual student, currently planting roots in Toronto for the first time. While it is hard to say when and where Jessie’s literary love first began, it has always been clear that literature would play an important role in her life. This love led Jessie to pursue English Language and Literature at the post-secondary level. After completing her Bachelor of Arts Honours in English Literature at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Jessie hopped on a plane and went on to intern at and write for Edinburgh’s The Skinny Magazine, Scotland’s leading arts and culture magazine. Upon returning to Canada one year later, she completed her Masters of Arts at McMaster University in Cultural Studies, Critical Theory, and English. Come September, Jessie will be embarking on the doctoral journey, beginning her PhD in English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University.
Apart from her work for The Toronto Quarterly (and when you won’t find her mongering your favourite Canadian, artisanal cheese at About Cheese on Church St.), Jessie has a few writing projects in the works. Not only is she rewriting her MA project, "(dis)orderly conduct: power, knowledge, and constructions of weight embodiment," into an online series, but is transforming her recent Canadian Women’s Studies Association conference paper, “Eating Out: Queering Disorderly Consumption,” into a print piece as well. Jessie is thrilled to be working with The Toronto Quarterly.
