Nathan Gehoski

A recent graduate of Eastern Michigan University’s creative writing MA program, Nathan Gehoski pursues an experimental approach to trauma and its affect in prose. Heavily influenced by the work of theorists like Michel Foucault and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak he struggles with ways to pressure or escape the confines of prescriptive or normalized representations within moments of trauma. His thesis, a draft of a novel entitled On War, deals in part with a moment of historical rupture during World War II when the Red Army invaded East Germany and the value of human life seemed to almost inescapably collapse.

Nathan’s fiction piece, “On War,” appears in albeit 2.1: Women on War.
