Description

Sarah Lawrence Alumna Emily Lim Rogers will present a lecture entitled: Queer Theory, Feminism, and the Politics of Diagnosis: An Archaeology of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This talk applies queer and feminist approaches to the contemporary debate over chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a contested diagnosis that is found disproportionately in women. Rather than understand the debate between CFS patient activists and researchers as one of “pro” versus “anti-science,” Rogers will attempt to unravel the constellation of gender formations, economic relations, labor arrangements, and racialized bodies that make it so difficult to distinguish normal fatigue from abnormal fatigue at the present juncture
Emily Lim Rogers is a second year PhD student in American Studies at NYU. She received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College, where she concentrated in LGBT studies, US cultural history, and sociology.
