The article weaves together personal experiences of pain with critical readings of cultural discourses to make several key interventions into knowledge produced about/through pain. It brings together analytical processes of cripping and queering to trace the discursive systems that materially produce and structure experiences of pain, lay out a corporeally infused cultural analysis of pain, excavate the felt experiences of cultural discourses, and situate those experiences within a broader cultural politics of ableism, or what Tobin Siebers calls an ideology of ability.
