Ordinary Bodies, essay collection

Ordinary Bodies is an essay collection that brings my expertise in American environmental culture into conversation with disability history and culture. The book shows how bodies and landscapes seen to be marginal speak back to normed selves. Situated at the nexus of nineteenth-century literary studies, environmental humanities, and disability studies, Ordinary Bodies investigates the affective ties between toxic, disabled landscapes and disabled bodies. Portions of this book have been published in Michigan Quarterly Review, and Disability Studies Quarterly.
