Brown Bag Talk: Disability Justice and (In)Visbility in Long Covid and ME Activism with Jennifer Nish



This presentation explores how chronic disease activists with Long Covid and myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME, have mobilized embodied rhetorics in the context of a transnational crisis: the rapid rise in post-infections disease caused by COVID-19. I use (in)visibility as a conceptual framework for understanding the rhetorical and political problems that people with these post-infectious diseases face as well as the tactics with which activists respond.


Presented by Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Composition Jennifer Nish

All are welcome to attend!
