Megan H. Glick

Megan H. Glick is Associate Professor of American Studies, and is affiliated faculty in the Science and Society Program and the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. Her research and teaching focus on representations of difference along lines of race, gender, disability, and speciation, from both cultural and scientific perspectives.

Her first book, Infrahumanisms: Science, Culture, and the Making of Modern Non/personhood (Duke University Press, 2018), explores cultural and biological understandings of liminal humanity in the twentieth century U.S., and was awarded the 2019 Alison Piepmeier Book Prize by the National Women's Studies Association (NWSA). Her writing has also appeared in American Quarterly, Social Text, Gender and History, and Literature and Medicine. At Wesleyan, she teaches numerous courses across cultural studies and the medical humanities, including, “Popular Culture and Social Justice,” “Visual Culture Studies and Violence,” “Bioethics and the Animal-Human Boundary,” “Race and Medicine in America,” “Health, Illness, and Power,” “Biopolitics/Animality/Posthumanism,” and “Modern Histories of Gender and Sexuality.”
