University of Michigan, B.S. (English and Biochemistry), 1999.

Raymond Malewitz teaches literature and science, environmental literature, and American literature of the 20th and 21st centuries.  His current book project examines the ways that real and imagined “maker” communities—environmental advocates, shade-tree engineers, post-apocalyptic survivalists, and so on—reinvent the myth of American rugged individualism through creative acts of object repurposing.  He is also at work on an essay that examines how photorealism and digital realism generate different forms of sexual and political desire.  His essays on Cormac McCarthy, William Gibson, Gwendolyn Brooks, and material culture have been published (or are forthcoming) in journals such as PMLA, Contemporary Literature, Configurations, and Callaloo.  He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in English Literature (2007) and a B.S. in English Literature and Biochemistry from the University of Michigan.
