AboutMy name is Kit Mead. I am an autistic self-advocate, and activist.
I graduated with a BA in history from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA. My historical research is in disability history, especially American eugenics. My senior seminar was on Carrie Buck, the woman in the 1927 Supreme Court case, Buck v. Bell. I was researching her life outside of that case.
On a non academic-related note, I love cats (and most other animals). I also like writing poetry, fantasy, magical realism, and realistic fiction, and drawing abstract art.
You can also find me at:
- Pagination Imagination (main Tumblr blog)
- Pagination Art (my art tumblr, I sell pieces too)
- Disability in History and Life (where I post stuff about eugenic history and disability history)
- @kpagination on Twitter (a lot of my tumblr posts link to here. I retweet other people too)
oh look pictures.
