Narin Hassan received her PhD in English from the University of Rochester in 2003. Before joining the School of Literature, Media, and Communication faculty at Georgia Tech, she taught at James Madison University for two years. Her research and teaching interests include Victorian literature and culture, postcolonial and gender studies; and the history of medicine. Much of her work examines representations of the body and of medicine in nineteenth-century literature and culture. Her book, Diagnosing Empire: Women, Medical Knowledge and Colonial Mobility (Ashgate, 2011) traces the figure of the woman doctor in the context of Victorian colonial and scientific expansion. She has published work in journals including Women's Studies Quarterly, Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, Mosaic, and Nineteenth-Century Contexts as well as a number of book collections. She is currently working on a book that examines gender, yoga cultures, and shifting conceptions of the mind, body, and spirituality in relation to British colonialism. She is also co-editing (with Jessica Howell) a special issue of the journal Medical Humanities on "Global Health Humanitiies" and has co-edited (with Nicole Lobdell) a special issue of Nineteenth-Century Contexts on the topic of "Mobilities." She currently serves as the Vice President of INCS (Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies).
