Proliferating Cripistemologies

A Virtual Roundtable

Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies (2014), 8, (2), 149–170.

Abstract

How might "cripistemologies" work? Without assuming in advance that we know what such ways of knowing might be, we have gathered in this roundtable a range of queer, trans, feminist, disability, and critical race theorists—namely, Lennard Davis, David Serlin, Emma Kivisild, Jennifer Nash, Jack Halberstam, Margaret Price, Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Jasbir K. Puar, Susan Schweik, Jennifer James, Lisa Duggan, and Carrie Sandahl—to meditate collectively on what those ways of knowing do. How, when, where, and why do queer, feminist, and disability epistemologies converge? What does it mean, in our own moment or historically, to respond to impairment (of body, mind, even behavior) in queer, feminist, or crip ways? If radical social movements of the last four decades have (expansively, even promiscuously) put bodies in motion, in what ways has neoliberal capitalism usurped, contained, or domesticated those bodies? How might that containment or domestication be cripped? What tensions or torsions exist among various cripistemologies? Are certain forms of queer (anti)sociality, for instance, in discord with interdependency as it has been imagined and materialized by feminist disability studies? Are there crip positions, embodiments, or moments of pain or pleasure that necessarily exceed the (compulsory?) identities or identifications of rights-based movements?
