Will Clark completed a PhD in English at UCLA in 2018. Before graduate school, he worked for a Bay Area nonprofit, where he successfully secured grants from California state agencies and major private foundations. He specializes in the relation between LGBT studies, U.S. literature, and the law, and his dissertation examines literary representations of citizenship from the Fourteenth Amendment to the Great Depression, with a particular interest in the late-century emergence of queer social membership.
