Megan H. Glick is Assistant Professor of American Studies and affiliate faculty in the Science and Society 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. Her writing has appeared in American Quarterly, Social Text, Gender and History, and Hypatia. 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.”
