Crip Feelings/Feeling Crip

Mr Brady Forrest, George Washington University

Date: Wednesday 18 April, 2018
Time: 2.00pm–3.30pm
Place: EDEN 109, Liverpool Hope University, UK


If there is no crying in disability studies then what becomes of those whose emotions are disabling or those whose disability is invalidated because it is considered just a feeling?  This seminar explores the often overlooked imbrication between emotions and disability in queer and affect theory through readings of Ann Cvetkovich’s Depression and José Muñoz’s “A Jeté Out the Window.”  Accounting for the ways excessive emotions, such as mania and depression, can be disabling allows for more bridges between crip and queer theory to be realized.  Building on Robert McRuer’s work connecting queerness and disability and José Muñoz’s theorization of brown feelings, the affective position of people of color, Mr Forrest names the slipperiness between disability identity and emotions as crip feelings/feeling crip.  The term uses “crip” to signify how the confluence of disability and emotions further troubles the able-disabled identity divide and expands McRuer’s “ability trouble” not only to allow understandings of emotions to be put into crisis but also to proliferate opportunities for political alliances.  


Brady James Forrest is a PhD student in the Department of English at the George Washington University, where he also holds a Master’s degree in American Studies.  He is working towards a dissertation that intervenes in existing work on crip-queer temporality and affect through an exploration of queer film and television shows, US modernist literature, subculture fashion shows, and live musical performances as sites of liminal world building that resist teleological claims on or about futurity.

This seminar is part of the CCDS series, Disability and the Emotions. Other dates include:

23 May 2018, Remembering the Great War through Bodies and Emotions: The Experience of Disabled Ex Servicemen between the Two World Wars, Ugo Pavan Dalla Torre.
