About Me

I am an historian specializing in the history of science and medicine in the United States. I work concurrently as a Lecturer at Oklahoma State University and as an Adjunct Professor at Southwest Minnesota State University. Currently, I’m writing a book about eugenics, sterilization, and carceral power at a girls’ reform school in Kansas. I have taught the American history survey as well as courses on the Gilded Age, American Thought and Culture, and WWII. I have in the past also taught courses on the history of evolutionary theory, magical realism in literature, and composition and rhetoric.

I’ve got a profile at academia.edu, and you can find other writings over at slowlorisblog.wordpress.com.

I tweet @slowlorisblog, and you can reach me at rymarcatt[at]gmail[dot]com.
