Assistant Professor of English


Mariah Min (she/her) (PhD, University of Pennsylvania; MA, NYU; AB, Princeton University) is an Assistant Professor in the English Department . Her research concerns the cultural output of the Late Middle Ages in Britain and interlinked regions, centering on characterization and portrayals of identity formation, in particular literary depictions of race. Her current book project, Figure Writing: Technologies of Character in Medieval Literature, examines medieval literary characters in order to disentangle the longstanding conflation of character and human subjectivity within both critical and popular discourse. She is also at work on a second project about the memorializing functions of cannibalism.
