Research

Bodies considered disabled or deformed may elicit strong affective responses: they may shock us, disgust us, evoke sympathy or make us laugh for example. In my research, I examine literature and art in which affective responses are shared and/or evoked by these deviant bodies, focusing on what the artwork does and how it works and is constructed to elicit such responses. Concurrently, through the added emphasis on emotional and affective responses provoked by disabled bodies, I explore how art may manipulate such responses.
