Hey, I’m Saoirse

Hey! My name and my passion are the same: Saoirse, the Gaelic word for freedom. As an exophonic writer, my academic interests revolve around linguistic power dynamics, especially in connection to the land. I believe literature is one of the best tools for the pursuit of freedom, particularly in the context of colonialism. My goal is to harness our capacity for language, for story, to combat systemic discrimination on a local and global scale.
