Rosemarie Ho is a Philosophy and Allied Fields (Literature) major at the University of Chicago, and the Editor-in-Chief of The Midway Review. She was The Point Magazine‘s 2017 Metcalf Editorial Intern, and the Poetry Editor of Euphony Magazine from 2015-2016. Her essays and reportage can be found at The Midway Review and The Chicago Maroon, and she’s looking into getting into the journalism and publishing industry after college. She has a deep and abiding interest in pop culture and its tenuous relationship with politics, which you may realise from going through her Twitter feed. Current obsessions include Netflix’s BoJack Horseman, fashion trends like chokers and mom jeans that hinge on an aesthetics of nostalgia, Lucky Peach (RIP), and memes as the postmodern take on mimesis. She also prides herself on knowing something about making coffee.
Rosemarie likes cultural criticism, and not think-pieces rehashing the same view of music/literature/any given cultural artefact that’s been around for years and years, while thinking themselves new and progressive (c.f. Walter Benjamin). She promises to never write anything that falls in the latter category.
If you would like, you can sign up for her TinyLetter (no spam, she promises), where she will disclose her writing projects (rumour has it that she is working on a novel).
