Artist Statement

I'm an associate professor at Rutgers University, where I teach in the departments of History and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. My scholarship, artwork, and curatorial practice reflect my interest in queer and trans history, science and technology, archives and collectives, and feminist activism. I'm the author of three books and edited volumes: The Shape of Sex: Nonbinary Gender from Genesis to the Renaissance (Columbia University Press, 2021); "Trans*historicities" (with Zeb Tortorici), a special issue of the journal TSQ (Duke, 2018); and Prophecy, Alchemy, and the End of Time (Columbia, 2009). My essays and reviews have appeared in Wired, Spot, Radical History Review, GLQ, WSQ (Women's Studies Quarterly), Osiris, ASAP/Journal, postmedieval, Journal of the History of Sexuality, and a number of books. I've lectured internationally and received grants and residential fellowships from the National Science Foundation, University of Wisconsin-Madison, UCLA, the Huntington Library, and the Stanford Humanities Center, among others.
