Research Interests:

The primary focus of my research program is on how the development of grassroots disability identity formations can, and indeed does generate, transformative social change. More specifically, I am interested in further identifying ways in which identity formation processes manifest at the productive intersection of spatiality, self-governance, and transgressive discourse. This research program is informed by social movement literature, critical disability studies scholarship, feminist philosophy and world feminisms, human geography and the geographies of disability, activist anthropology, disability studies in anthropology, critical sociology, and postmodern theory.
