  • Introduction: The Biosocial Politics of Queer/Crip Contagions
    • Abstract: In this special issue, we chart the limits and possibilities of queer/crip biosocial politics by examining the ways these ideas intersect and commingle with the narratives, practices, and temporalities of contagion. Crip and queer mark out, and indeed, flaunt the failures of normativity. And, in their fierce assertion of the possibility of an outside or more-than-one, crip and queer share a striking range of political and imaginative affinities. Feminist scholars have variously theorized queer and crip as unsettling, strange, twisted, unintelligible, or disruptive (Ahmed 2006; Butler 1993; Kafer 2013; McRuer 2006; Muñoz 2009; Kuppers 2011; Sandahl 2003; Chen 2012; Puar 2012; Johnson 2015; Clare 2001; McRuer and ...

  • Metaphors of Contagion and the Autoimmune Body
    • Abstract: Contamination then is no longer a risk but a fate that must be assumed.Autoimmunity is a biopolitical force that confounds immunological paradigms predicated on binary dichotomies of self and nonself, revolutionary and counterrevolutionary, ability and disability, and so forth.Responding to threats of disease imbued with the capacity to infiltrate porous state borders and bodies, various nation-states have provoked racialized and nationalist panics over pandemics like Ebola, Avian flu (Bird Flu), SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), HIV/AIDS, and, most recently, the Zika virus. In order to combat such threats of contagion, the United States (and other nations) have responded by tightening immigration and ... Read More

  • Dangerous Embodiments: Segregating Sexual Perversion as Contagion in US
           Penal Institutions
    • Abstract: In their 1954 edition of A Manual of Correctional Standards, the American Correctional Association (ACA) identified homosexual prisoners as "a serious problem" and strongly recommended the "complete isolation and at least segregation" of the "sex deviated from normal inmates" in order to "prevent moral contamination . . . [and] custody risks" and to render them "harmless within the jail" (The Committee 1954, 177). That same year, California Department of Corrections director Richard McGee sent a memo, entitled "Transfer of Homosexuals and Potential Homosexual," to "all Institutions," outlining a new system-wide policy to transfer all "inmates who have definite effeminate characteristics and/or who consistently play ...

  • HPV Vaccination and Affective Suspicions in Barbados
    • Abstract: What might it mean to narrate vaccination hesitancy as suspicion, as an affective intensity that is contagious, palimpsestic and generative—something to which feminist scholars might look to complicate and trouble claims to knowledge' Drawing upon seven months of ethnographic research in Barbados between 2015 and 2016 during which I explored ambivalence toward the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, I offer women of color and transnational feminism as critical praxes through which we might unsettle the often-deemed unsettling phenomenon of hesitancy, while complicating our understandings of ambivalence toward biotechnologies like the HPV vaccine in the global South. In adopting this position, my concern lies not in ... Read More

  • Crip Kinship: A Political Strategy of People Who Were Deemed Contagious by
           the Shirtless Putin
    • Abstract: In 2013, the Russian state passed an Administrative Code statute declaring "non-traditional sexual relations" such as "male homosexual relations, bisexuality, and transgenderism" as contagious and prohibited any form of "dissemination" or "propaganda" about such "non-traditional relations."1 The law implies that sexual relations of this sort can be transmitted from one body to another and are dangerous for children because they can plant "non-traditional sexual attitudes" in their psyche, "provoke interest into such relationship," and make children queer, enlarging the "diseased" population of the Russian Federation (Federal Law 2013). Within this contagious framing, the law seeks to prevent Russian children from ... Read More

    • Abstract: One evening in December 2012, two dozen beauty pageant candidates paraded onto a small gymnasium stage in metropolitan Manila as part of the Miss Deaf Gay Philippines competition.1 Dressed in all white, these deaf contestants performed a choreographed dance to "Sirena" (mermaid), a popular Philippine rap song by Gloc9 about the life of a bakla who suffered physical and verbal childhood abuse for feminine expressions like wearing lipstick and swaying their hips. The chorus went like this:Ako'y isang sirena(I'm a mermaid)Kahit anong sabihin nila, ako ay ubod ng ganda(Whatever they say, I'm very beautiful)Ako'y isang sirena(I'm a mermaid)Kahit anong gawin nila, bandera ko'y di tutumba(Whatever they do, my ...

  • Subtle Neglect and Yuckiness: Queerness, Disability, and Contagion in
           Mother Narratives
    • Abstract: Queer gestures toward a category of identification as well as a set of practices that challenge normative ideas about gender, sexuality, and kinship. As such, dominant cultural understandings of queerness are steeped in normative fears about what, and who, queerness will reproduce. Such alarm intensifies with the proximity of queerness to children. As Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick writes, "[A]dvice on how to help your kids turn out gay, not to mention your students, your parishioners, your therapy clients, or your military subordinates, is less ubiquitous than you might think" (1991, 23).Over two decades later, Sedgwick's observations remain salient. Debates and discussions on the risks posed by queer individuals and ... Read More

  • The Desire to Recognize the Undesirable: De/Constructing the Autism
           Epidemic Metaphor and Contagion in Autism as a Discourse
    • Abstract: Autism is a complex phenomenon that is widely spread throughout society, unconfined to the clinically situated discursive agency and positivist gaze of psychiatry (Lester and Paulus 2012). In the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it is officially defined as a spectrum of social, emotional, and sensory impairments (American Psychiatric Association 2013). However, this taxonomic list of symptoms alone is not enough to grasp the full production and circulation of autism as a discourse. In order to more fully consider this issue, research questions must attend to the contingent specificities of autism discourse. Following Foucault, I ask, what can and cannot be said about ...

  • Zika: Grappling with Prognostic Un/certainty and Open Normativities
    • Abstract: Prognostic certainty refers to the idea that once we diagnose a body (fetus, child, adult) with a condition, we can predict the outcome of that condition on the living subject, regardless of sociocultural circumstances (Timmermans and Buchbinder 2013).1 Introduced by bioethicists Stefan Timmermans and Mara Buchbinder in the context of their work on newborn genetic screening, the term provides a clear distinction between the diagnostic (what can be medically and/ or scientifically determined) and the prognostic (what is the outcome of medical and social interventions). Yet, I argue that Timmerman and Buchbinder's articulation of prognostic certainty nonetheless relies upon ableism, a system of structures that limit ... Read More

  • Precarious Kisses and Risky Interactions: Allergic Reactions through Fluid
           Exchanges
    • Abstract: But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a Kiss'""Standing before you, I ingest you. There is nothing fanciful about this. I am ingesting your exhaled air, your sloughed skin, and the skin of the tables, chairs, and carpet in this room."In a 2003 article entitled "The Kiss of Death: A Severe Allergic Reaction to a Shellfish Induced by a Good-Night Kiss," Dr. David Steensma of the Mayo Clinic reports on a case of a 20-year-old woman's anaphylactic reaction that was induced after kissing her boyfriend. Roughly an hour prior to the kiss, the boyfriend had eaten shrimp, a known allergen for the young woman. Steensma cautions, "To my knowledge, this is the first report of a life-threatening ...

  • Feels and Flows: On the Realness of Menstrual Pain and Cripping Menstrual
           Chronicity
    • Abstract: It starts as a nagging, slow, tugging sense of pain, a presence, a reminder, a low ache, a warning that it will grow, and worsen, and twist its way through my body. It is an animal reminder of the body and its remarkable ability to command my attention. The pain evades language, showing itself in wave after wave as it slowly, perceptibly, tears its way out.—b.f.Menstrual chronicity has a complex somatechnical life. On the one hand, the menstrual event has been laden with pathologizing language in Western culture. Since the 1970s, feminists have observed the ways menstruation has been deployed to prove women's biological limitations, limitations supposedly imposed by the body itself, and thus evidence of women's ...

  • Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure by Eli Clare (review)
    • Abstract: Given how much cure masquerades as an apolitical good ("cure rides on the back of normal and natural" [14]), disability activists, artists and scholars have had to work overtime to show how cure overshadows—economically, morally, and culturally—other access needs that would materially benefit disabled people. Meanwhile, cure-or-kill narratives (i.e., the idea that anyone is "better dead than disabled") contribute to body-mind shame. Disabled people manage this ableist stigma with crip pride, refusal, snark, pain, art, and anger, and, alongside critical disability studies scholars, they have offered a multifaceted critique of cure. However, at times, when disabled or chronically ill people express a desire for cure ... Read More

  • Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene by Donna J.
           Haraway (review)
    • Abstract: Though waving a new banner with a fresh slogan, the aim of Donna Haraway's scholarship has always been to "Stay with the Trouble!" Here, in her most recent book, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene, Haraway, accompanied with string figures, sheep, science fiction, storytelling, scientists, racing pigeons, horse urine, artists, and countless other multispecies entanglements, persists and stays with the trouble of climate change, capitalism, mass extinctions, overpopulation, and all the other disastrous, human-made troubles of which many have come to call the Anthropocene.Named for the destructive impact of human-driven development, industrialization, resource extraction, and animal extinctions ...

  • Curative Violence: Rehabilitating Disability, Gender, and Sexuality in
           Modern Korea by Eunjung Kim (review)
    • Abstract: Discourses of cure inspire uncomfortable conversations within the field of disability studies. Eunjung Kim's book Curative Violence: Rehabilitating Disability, Gender, and Sexuality in Modern Korea is situated in this uncomfortable space. Kim makes the polemical claim that cure is a form of violence. "Curative Violence," according to Kim, "is when cure is what actually frames the presence of disability as a problem and ends up destroying the subject in the curative process . . . [becoming] at once remedy and poison" (14). The National Women's Studies Association (NWSA) has awarded Kim the Alison Piepmeier Book Prize that recognizes "a groundbreaking monograph in women, gender, and sexuality studies that makes ...

  • Against Purity: Living Ethically in Compromised Times by Alexis Shotwell
           (review)
    • Abstract: Alexis Shotwell opens her rigorous new book, Against Purity: Living Ethically in Compromised Times, in a tiny airplane restroom, washing her hands. Flying return to Ottawa from San Francisco, Shotwell reflects on what it means for her to have used 5.8 tons of greenhouse gasses (and an airline-provided disposable plastic cup) to fly to a drought-stricken state to attend a conference on environmental issues. The scene no doubt resonates with readers concerned with climate change and environmental degradation, as such daily anxieties about our own complicity in ecological harm have become representative of what it means to live in the Anthropocene. Shotwell uses this moment, however, not to dwell on her own ecological ... Read More
