Queer and Crip Theory
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:
A series of papers focused on crip spatialities, temporalities, and general dimensionalities.
A more creative text on travelling while crip.
An autoethnographic take on living the intersection of crip-identity and trans-identity.
A paper on the relative absence of trans people with early physical impairments.
Two articles in French on the treatment of minorities during CoViD-19 and the resulting thanatopolitics.
An article on disabled mobilities and mathematics, that also covers the difficulty in creating accessibility databases.
An article on trans aesthetics and urbanity.
A reflexion on the Twitter harassment I received upon joining the CNRS.
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).
