Welcome to A Life Unexamined!
Some things about the owner of this blog:
My name’s Jo Qualmann, and I write from Brisbane, Australia.
I identify as a white, working class, able-bodied, cisgendered, aromantic asexual female. That’s the easiest way of trying to describe myself and my orientation.
I’m a student of ancient history, Latin and archaeology at the University of Queensland. I hope to continue on to become a full-blown, crazy academic one day, in something like Roman social and gender history and archaeology.
I am a feminist, albeit still a newbie. As I read and research and write I hope to get a better understanding of the way the world works and what my own opinions are about it, even if it can be overwhelming sometimes! Most of my posts focus on asexuality and visibility work, feminism and gender. On more relaxed days, you’ll find me blogging about history, books, Doctor Who, and my vegetable garden.
I hope you’ll enjoy what you find here!
