Cassius Adair

Cassius Adair (@cassius_a) is an audio producer, writer, and researcher who lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a 2019 Late Night Co-Provocateur, he'll share how learning about trans storytelling changes the way we tell stories about: feelings and bodies and science and politics and... well, everything.

Currently, he is an associate producer on the nationally-distributed public radio show With Good Reason . In 2018, he was an New Voices Scholar. Previously, Dr. Adair has taught literature and media at the University of Michigan; been an audio storytelling consultant at the Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning; helped produce a daily news and culture show at Michigan Radio, and worked as a Mellon Humanities Fellow at the Digital Library Federation.

His writing appears in American Quarterly, Misadventures Magazine, and is forthcoming in Semiotic Review. He is now writing a book about transgender people and the Internet.
