“Embodied Ambiguity: Towards a Critical Phenomenology of Illness”

Prince Lucien Campbell Hall (PLC), 159
1415 Kincaid Street, Eugene, OR

Sarah McLay, PhD candidate, Philosophy and 2022–23 OHC Dissertation Fellow.

Please register to attend.

My dissertation, exploring the relationship between bodies, values, and society, offers a philosophical framework for making sense of the lived experience of illness. Working at the intersections of phenomenology and critical disability studies, I develop a critical phenomenology of illness; that is, a non-normate or crip analysis of ill bodies that moves beyond ableist frameworks of illness, health, healing, and life.
