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 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.
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).
