Chris Perreira is Assistant Professor of American Studies at KU, where he teaches courses on Chicanx-Latinx cultural studies and carceral studies. Chris writes about race, racism, and criminality in the context of medicine and public health, as well as about speculative fiction by writers/artists of color imagining environmental justice. He has two projects in the works. The first is a book on the cultural dynamics of medicine as a state science, examining historical and cultural narratives of disease and contagion as racialized threats. His second book is a study of Chicanx speculative writing, print culture, and public arts, specifically looking at how these creative works have envisioned communities, neighborhoods, and kinships through the lens of environmental futures.
