Illness Narratives, Networked Subjects, and Intimate Publics

November 14, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Through the relational production and circulation of personal narratives about experiences with pain and loss, new publics are created while networked subjects are negotiated. This colloquium addresses the productive capacities of illness, disability, death, and dying, asking how individuals use online platforms or other forms of new technology to both reproduce and contest popular discourses surrounding these everyday phenomena.
