Rachel Fox

Graduate Teaching Consultant

Rachel Fox is a PhD candidate at UC San Diego in the Communication Department, Science Studies Program, and Critical Gender Studies Graduate Specialization. She holds a BA in Biology from Wesleyan University, an MS in Narrative Medicine from Columbia University, and an MA in Communication from UC San Diego. Prior to starting her PhD, she taught at Rutgers University in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department and at Sarah Lawrence College in the Master of Health Advocacy Program. Rachel’s work is deeply interdisciplinary, drawing on multiple fields and approaches to broadly study the racialized and gendered construction of fatness. When she’s not in the archives or performing a discourse analysis, Rachel loves to teach, and especially enjoys challenging UCSD’s undergraduates to think critically about issues of access and justice. When she’s not teaching, writing, or working, Rachel loves to spend time spoiling her cats.
