Kim Adams is a postdoctoral lecturer in the College Core Curriculum at New York University. Her dissertation, The Body Electric, follows the application of electricity to the human body in American literature and medicine from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Era, arguing that electric power works to form bodies into raced, sexed, and gendered subjects. As a scholar and educator, Kim is invested in work that combines material history with theoretical stakes to evoke practical consequences.
