Brandy Eileen Allatt earned her Associate of Arts in Humanities from Blinn College before attending The University of Colorado in Boulder. She completed her BA at Texas State University, with a double major in English and Political Science, graduating summa cum laude in the summer of 2011 in spite of living in Germany at the time. In 2011, she also finished a Certificate in German Studies from a UMUC-Europe satellite campus in Bavaria. After enjoying Germany for two years, she returned to Texas State University for their MA-Literature program, where she successfully defended her thesis, Lies and Individuation: External and Internal Authority in the Politics and Anima of Dune. A Master of Arts degree in Literature, with a concentration in science fiction studies, was conferred upon Mz. Allatt in December of 2015. She regularly presents papers at The International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts (ICFA), one of which was presented in a modified format at her local Nerd Nite*, and also presented in the fall of 2016 at Gesellschaft für Fantastikforschung (GFF, Association for Research in the Fantastic). Her chapter, “Questioning Mononormativity: A Future of Fantastic Scholarship in Liminal Identities,” which introduces the concept of mononormativity in fantastic scholarship, was published in Exploring the Fantastic: Genre, Ideology, and Popular Culture in 2018.
