Matthew Wolf-Meyer


Matthew Wolf-Meyer is Professor of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. His work focuses on medicine, science, and media in the United States, and draws on history, contemporary experiences, and popular representations of health and illness. Across his research, he focuses on how personhood and subjectivity are produced and transformed over the life course. This includes concerns about how the care of children and the elderly reflect cultural expectations of what it means to be normal, how the structure of families and other institutions reflect social concerns, and how attention to experiences of disability and illness can help build more inclusive societies.
