Input


Jane Gallop, University of Wisconsin/Madison

This paper follows on Jane Gallop's 2019 book, Sexuality, Disability and Aging: Queer Temporalities of the Phallus, to focus more on the difference an attention to late-onset disability can make for crip theory.  Crip Theory has been for the last two decades a site of important, groundbreaking theorizing of the body, combining as it does the insights of queer theory and disability perspectives.  This paper takes what it calls "late-onset disability"  (disability starting in middle age or later) as a point of interrogation for crip theory, introducing the question of change over time to the antinormative thinking of crip theory.  This retheorization takes place via readings of two classic 90s text that were foundational for crip theory: Eve Sedgwick's Epistemology of the Closet and Lennard Davis's Enforcing Normalcy.
