The 2019-20 Humanities Forum - Disability in the Archive-Hygiene, History, and Intercorporeality Susan Antebi

Wednesday, 02 October, 2019

Susan Antebi teaches contemporary and twentieth-century Latin American literature and culture and her current research focuses on disability and corporeality in the contexts of Mexican cultural production at the University of Toronto. She is the author of Carnal Inscriptions: Spanish American Narratives of Corporeal Difference and Disability, (Palgrave-
Macmillan, 2009). Her work in the area of disability studies stems from a long-standing interest in concepts and experiences of corporeal difference, particularly as tied to the history of ethnographic spectacle, and to the ethics of embodied identity in literature and performance. Her second book seeks to contextualize disability and the project of disability studies as integral to reading Mexican cultural and public health history. Other research and teaching interests include literary approaches to medicine, science and technology; feminist theory, performance studies, and cultural representations of the Mexican Revolution. She serves on the editorial board of Disability and the Global South: An International Journal, and was elected member of the Modern Languages Association Division Executive Committee on Disability Studies.
