Kay Sohini is a researcher, writer, and comics maker based in New York. She has a PhD from Stony Brook University, where she drew her doctoral dissertation, “Drawing Unbelonging,” as a comic. The project was supported by a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation and the American Council of Learned Society.
In both her creative and academic work, Kay focuses on how comics can be utilized by scholars and artists alike in healthcare justice, in environmental humanities, in resisting disinformation, and in espousing an equitable future for all. Her work has been published in The Nib, Graphic Mundi’s Covid Chronicles, Women Write About Comics, and Inside Higher Ed, amongst others. Her illustrations have appeared in NRDC, the OER Project, etc.
She volunteers for the International Comic Arts Forum and the Feminist Press and is currently working on her debut graphic memoir UNBELONGING, to be published by Penn State University Press in 2023.
