Biography


Kameron Dunn (he/him/his) is a second-year Ph.D. student in the American Studies program at the University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on aesthetic communities: primarily online communities whose formation is predicated on aesthetic interest. These include the furry fandom, Korean beauty communities, and web-based white nationalist communities. His research merges literary, cultural-historical, ethnographic, social-psychological, and Digital Humanities methodologies to investigate questions of queerness, intimacy, fetish interest, donation habits, cosplay, artistic self-expression, fandom, transnational history of capitalism, and cuteness among others.

Kameron also received the Critical Language Scholarship for Korean and studied in Busan, South Korea in the summer of 2019.
