Lydia Abedeen

India Downes-Le Guin

Lydia Abedeen is a senior at Emory University majoring in creative writing and comparative literature. Her creative and research interests encompass Bangladeshi identities, motherhood, intergenerational trauma, literary trauma theory, religion, cults, fairy tale, and mythology. When she isn’t relocating snails in her tea garden, she’s either baking peanut butter cookies, reading Anne Carson, or eating soup. An Association of Research Libraries Digital and Inclusive Excellence Fellow, Lydia hopes to be either a librarian or bread connoisseur upon graduation. She’s been published in a Penguin anthology and has work forthcoming in The Rumpus, and is a graduate of The University of Iowa’s Between the Lines International Workshop.
