A talk by Jane Gallop, feminist critic, author, and Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

This talk discusses adult-onset disability, middle-aging, and sexuality. The project brings together crip theory, feminist aging studies, queer temporality, psychoanalysis, and anecdotal theory. It considers how disability that begins in midlife and/or the entrance to middle age are lived as a threat to one’s sexuality and one’s gender, but also how these perspectives can supply us with alternative models of sexual temporality.
