Hello, I’m Emma.
I’m working towards a PhD at Edge Hill, looking at the overlap and interaction between discourses of pain as an embodied experience for disabled people with chronic pain as a part of their impairment, and BDSM. If you understood that, you’re already doing better than me.
I have fibromyalgia, and I’m interested in how research can be made accessible for both disabled researchers and participants; I will be exploring how my own impairment (and disability) affects how I do my work, as well as the work I do.
When I’m not trying to be an academic, I knit, sew, crochet, herd greyhounds, and teach. I live in South East London.
