Swapping Gender in Shakespeare

Having a traditionally male-dominated work put on by an all-female cast doesn’t only freshen up a familiar play, it also leads audiences to consider their own ideas and assumptions about gender and theatre.

VICELANDs' The Therapist Seeks Truth Over Triviality

Freddie Gibbs has not spoken publicly about his 2015 sexual assault allegations- until now. In the first episode of VICELAND’s The Therapist, Gibbs sits down with Dr. Singh (PhD, LMFT) to break his silence on the “traumatizing” ordeal of being falsely accused, imprisoned, extradited, and finally found not guilty.

About

Michelle K Allan

My name is Michelle and I’m a GTA based journalist. I am currently finishing my last semester at Queen’s University, and will have earned a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with a major in English Literature by December 2018.

During my studies at Queen's, I have worked at many campus media outlets. I am currently the Head Journalist for Inquire Publication, and my previous positions have included Assistant Editor of Photography/Staff Writer at The Queen's Journal, Editor of The Undergraduate Review, and Reporter and Sports Coordinator at CFRC 101.9.

This summer I did a foreign reporting student program at the Reuters offices in Prague with Transitions Online, an online media organization covering politics and news of Central/Eastern Europe.

The previous summer I worked at The Beaverton, a Toronto-based satirical news publication. I was able to contribute both to the online publication and the TV show.

I also found time during my undergrad to contribute to rewriting the university’s Sexual Violence Policy, host the Queen's Poetry Slam, and complete a study abroad program in Elizabethan Shakespeare and British Studies at the Bader International Study Centre in Great Britain.

When not occupied by journalistic endeavours, I often work in photography and graphic design. I’ve done graphic design work for Supes Legit Productions which can be seen in the webseries #Interns. I’ve also held many photography jobs, including at the The Queen's Journal and the Queen's Arts and Science Undergraduate Society.

If you’re interested in collaborating or hiring me for freelance work, I can be reached at contact@michelleallan.ca.
