Lindsay O’Connor Stern received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Yale University. Her current book project, Second Nature, rethinks the legal fiction of the “person” from the perspective of 20th century literature and philosophy. She is the author of three books including Town of Shadows (Scrambler Books), about a mender of rugs living in a dictatorship, which was adapted into a dance. Her novel The Study of Animal Languages (Viking), an Amazon Editors’ pick, won a Lois Kahn Wallace Award from the Brearley School and the Taylor-Chehak Prize in fiction from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Her scholarship and shorter writing have appeared or are forthcoming in Law and Critique, DIAGRAM, and Smithsonian Magazine. She holds an M.F.A. from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and has received an Amy Award, a Watson Fellowship, and an Academy of American Poets Prize. Rebecca Lemov is Professor of the History of Science and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of the History of Science at Harard University. Her research focuses on key episodes and experiments in the history of the human and behavioral sciences.
