Recovering a Cripistemology of Pain: Leaky Bodies, Connective Tissue, and Feeling Discourse
Abstract

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.
