Hi! I'm Marcus Prasad.

I'm a Ph.D. student in Communication Studies at McGill University, supervised by Dr. Bobby Benedicto.


I work on psychoanalysis and queer theory to think through subjectivity in modern art and film.

I'm an Editorial Intern at Montréal Monstrum Society, a Research Assistant at The Collective for Research on Epistemologies and Ontologies of Embodied Risk, and one fifth of Sex in Theory.


I received my M.A. in Art History from The University of British Columbia in 2020. My thesis used queer theory to bridge contemporary horror film and postwar American art, and was funded by the Joseph Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship.


Here's my CV, and here's a list of my publications. Write to me at
