About Me


Lindsey Grubbs is a doctoral student and Woodruff fellow in the English department at Emory University, where she is also obtaining a certificate in bioethics. Her work investigates representations of psychiatric disability and medical authority in American literature from the nineteenth century until today. She is particularly interested in the moments when literature and culture intersect with questions of biomedical ethics and social policy. She holds a master’s degree in English and women’s studies from the University of Wyoming, and a bachelor’s degree, also from the University of Wyoming, in English with minors in Russian and creative writing.
