Sick Theories Conference

I am looking forward to presenting a paper at this upcoming conference— “Sick Theories: A Trans-disciplinary Conference on Sickness and Sexuality” in November. Organized by Margeaux Feldman and Lauren Fournier, the conference is bringing together “scholars, writers, artists, activists, and educators to untangle the relationships between sickness and sexuality.”

I’m excited to explore these ideas from the perspective of performance studies and critical disability studies (the two fields that my PhD work is rooted in). I’ll be speaking about sickness and temporality in performance, looking at disability-identified performers whose work explores specific temporal experiences of chronic illness.
