    •  Mel Y. Chen is Associate Professor of Gender & Women's Studies and Director for Berkeley’s Center for the Study of Sexual Culture at the University of California, Berkeley. Chen also enjoys affiliation with Berkeley’s Center for Race and Gender, Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society, and the Haas Disability Studies and LGBTQ Citizenship Research Clusters. Chen’s 2012 book, Animacies: Biopolitics, Racial Mattering, and Queer Affect (Duke University Press, winner of Alan Bray Award from Modern Language Association’s GL/Q Caucus), explores questions of racialization, queering, disability, and affective economies in animate and inanimate “life” through the extended concept of “animacy.” A second book project concerns the relationships among the conceptual territories of “toxicity” and “intoxication” and their involvement in histories of the shared interanimation of race and disability. Further writing on topics such as cognitive disability and method, animal gendering in film, the racialization of pollution, and queer intimacies can be found in the journals Women’s Studies QuarterlyGLQ, Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies, Transgender Studies Quarterly, Discourse, Women in PerformanceAustralian Feminist Studies,Amerasia, Worldviews, and Medical Humanities (forthcoming). A co-edited special issue (with Dana Luciano) of GLQ on “Queer Inhumanisms” appeared in early 2015. With Jasbir K. Puar, Chen coedits a book series entitled “Anima,” highlighting scholarship in critical race and disability post/in/humanisms at Duke University Press. Chen is serving a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the Society for Disability Studies.
