Film & Media Studies Graduate Student

Casey Coffee


Casey Coffee is an MA/PhD student in the Film & Media Studies department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Casey holds a BA in English from UC Santa Barbara with minors in feminist studies and professional writing. Her senior undergraduate thesis, “Observation, the Effeminate Serial, and Queering the Canon: The Case of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson,” was an intermedial study of how the narrative structures and textual features of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories and their film and television adaptations contribute to the queer readings of Holmes and Watson that dominate online fandom spaces. Casey has presented research at UCSB’s Intersubjectivity and Literature Conference, and her work explores queer reading practices in television fandom, audience expectations, seriality, and gendered narrative structures and reading practices.
