MIT LaurelThesis DefenseMonday at 10am I will be defending my doctoral dissertation, Animal Madness: A Natural History of Disorder at MIT.

Thank you History, Anthropology and STS for letting me in and letting me get this far. And special thanks to my committee: Harriet Ritvo, David Jones and Stefan Helmreich. You have terrified me, inspired me, challenged me, put up with me, fed me, encouraged me, and made me work harder than I thought possible. I’m grateful always in all ways.
