Rachel Elizabeth Dillon is a graduate student in English at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Her research includes apocalyptic literature and the rhetorical use of passing (race, gender, etc.). She recently taught a seminar at MIT on the latter topic; the syllabus and a class blog will soon be available through MIT Open CourseWare (http://ocw.mit.edu). She is a co-editor of Place/Time 1, available from Fox and the Lion Press. Her fiction and poetry, currently unpublished, is best described as genrequeer.
