Queer and Crip Theory

Points reachable by wheelchair from the center of Paris’ 11th discrit.

I have a strong personal interest in Queer Theory and Crip Theory, and have been an activist for most of my life. After joining Chôros, and especially since the end of my PhD, I have been devoting a significant portion of my time to reading and writing about these issues. I am mostly interested in the intersections between trans-identity and crip-identity. I am also interested in crip spatialities and temporalities.

I have written a few texts on the subject:

I have been discussed those subjects in a seminar on public bodies and another one on the oppositions in disability studies : francophone against anglphone, qualitative against quantitative (in French, download the video for higher quality),

I have also been invited to the Enjeux territoriaux radio show on France Culture and in a débat sans filtre organised by Cédric Villani. Finally, I gave in 2022 an introductory course on crip studies (in the Teaching tab).
