May 2, 2018 – Kyla Schuller: “The Biopolitics of Feeling: Race, Sex, & Science in the Nineteenth Century”

Kyla Schuller investigates the intersections between race, gender, sexuality, and the sciences in U.S. culture, and is particularly interested in ideas about how the body interacts with its environment from the periods both before and after classical genetics, i.e. the 19th century and the present. Overall, she examines how science and culture function as systems of knowledge that share methods and sources in common, even as they rhetorically claim distinct spheres.

Schuller is an Assistant Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick and an External Faculty Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center (2017-2018). She has previously held fellowships from ACLS and the UC Humanities Research Institute and a visiting scholar position at UC Berkeley.
