Aidan Flynn is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Architecture at MIT. He holds a B.A. in art history and Renaissance Studies from the University of Toronto, and a Master of Science in Architecture Studies from the History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture and Art at MIT. Aidan considers the relationships between postmodern queer theory and early modern studies as a simultaneously generative and anachronistic space, carefully examining and releasing the silences from the premodern archive. Prior to teaching at MIT, Aidan was Corbet Fellow at the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies, and Research Assistant to the Digitally Encoded Census and Information Mapping Archive.
