The Ontology of a Mixed-Race Woman

Myrna Perez Sheldon is assistant professor, jointly appointed in Classics & World religions and in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality studies at Ohio University. She has been a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Rice University and received her doctorate in the History of Science from Harvard University. She researches how both evolutionary science and Christianity influence racial and sexual identities in the United States. She is currently the PI of a three-year grant project, “Critical Approaches to Science and Religion,” funded by the Templeton World Charity Foundation, which intends to reshape the study of science and religion by engaging the field with critical-race, feminist, queer, and postcolonial theory.
