Sarah J. Wilhoit (she/her) earned her Ph.D. in English from the University of Arizona. She currently works as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the midwest where she teaches undergraduate courses in English and Women’s and Gender Studies. She also develops interdisciplinary classes on topics such as mass incarceration and peace studies. Her research focuses on the intersections of gender, madness, and feminist speculative fiction. When she is not busy trying to dismantle the patriarchy, you can find her walking in the woods with her partner and dog or cuddled up with a book and a cat. If you are interested in dismantling the patriarchy too, Sarah recommends donating to the Center for Reproductive Rights.
