Meg Weeks is a translator, writer, and Ph.D. candidate in history and the studies of women, gender, and sexuality at Harvard University.

Her translations of contemporary Brazilian fiction by Veronica Stigger and Conceição Evaristo have appeared in Two Lines Press and Adi, and her essays on topics ranging from contemporary art to reproductive rights have been published in piauí, Artforum, and n+1. She has recently completed a translation of the memoir of Gabriela Leite, the founder of Brazil's sex-worker movement.
