Keynote Speech

Dr. Susan Antebi’s research looks at disability and corporeality in contemporary and twentieth-century Mexican culture. She’s a co-editor of several books that intersect disabilities studies and Latin American cultural production. Dr. Antebis is also the author of two books Carnal Inscriptions: Spanish American Narratives of Corporeal Difference and Disability (2009), and Embodied Archive: Disability in Post-Revolutionary Mexican Cultural Production (2021), which was awarded the Siebers Prize for Disability Studies in the Humanities (2021). Currently, she’s working on projects focusing on eugenic legacies in contemporary Mexico and the Americas, and on para-abnormal agency in literature and spectacle.
