About

I'm an associate professor at Rutgers University, where I teach in the departments of History and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. My historical scholarship, artwork, and curation reflect my interest in queer and trans history, science and technology, archives and collectives, political activism, and other related subjects. I'm the author of three books and edited volumes: The Shape of Sex: Nonbinary Gender from Genesis to the Renaissance (Columbia University Press – May, 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, and Journal of the History of Sexuality, as well as in 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. 

My work has received coverage in publications such as Artforum, Huffington Post, People Magazine, Hyperallergic, Out, Art PapersFeature  Shoot, Redbook, Slate, Capricious, LA Weekly, Gallerist, Buzzfeed, Forbes, Refinery29, and Modern Painters, among others, and I've participated in exhibitions, programs, and panels at numerous universities and at arts venues such as Baxter Street Camera Club (NY, NY), Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (Omaha, NE), Blanton Museum of Art (Austin, TX), the Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, NY), Houston Center for Photography (Houston, TX), The Front (New Orleans, LA), Leslie-Lohman Museum (NY, NY), MoMA PS1 Contemporary Arts Center (Queens, NY), NYU's Tracey-Barry Gallery (NY, NY), the ONE Archives Gallery and Museum at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA), Paul Robeson Galleries (Newark, NJ), SPRING/BREAK Art Show (NY, NY), the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery (Saratoga Springs, NY), and Yale University School of Art (New Haven, CT).
