Will McKeithen is a doctoral student and educator in the Department of Geography at the University of Washington. He has also taught in the CHID and Honors Programs at UW Seattle and in 2017-2018 served as a Project in Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP) Fellow at UW Bothell. His research explores the politics of rights, citizenship, and medicine under contemporary capitalism and mass incarceration. His current research examines the everyday administration of prison healthcare in Washington state's two women's prisons. He has also collaborated on a project investigating the bio-economy of medicinal parasites and his earliest work examined the queer intimacies of 'crazy cat ladies' under neoliberal capitalism. As a teacher, he works with students to foster the tools necessary for individual success and collective liberation - critical thinking, active listening, local application, sustained curiosity, and ethical engagement.
