Biography

Anna McFarlane is the research assistant on the Wellcome Trust-funded Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities project at the University of Glasgow. She holds a Wellcome Trust Small Grants Award for a project entitled ‘Nursing, Reproduction, and Writing: Naomi Mitchison’s Science Fiction as Activism’. She was awarded her PhD from the University of St Andrews for a thesis concerning the role of gestalt psychology in William Gibson’s science fiction novels. She is the co-editor of Vector: The Critical Journal of the British Science Fiction Association and Adam Roberts: Critical Essays (Gylphi, 2016).

Research and Teaching Interests

My thesis focused on gestalt psychology and posthumanism, and these will be important components of my first monograph. I am interested in the ways medicine is used or changed by debates about posthumanism and the future of the humanities, an interest that I plan to pursue in a future research project.
