Biographical Notes

Lindsey Whitmore was born and raised in rural western Massachusetts. Prior to graduate work, she facilitated participatory community engagement at a peer-to-peer community center for people with lived experiences of addiction and trauma, and she remains connected to activist and recovery communities in the area.

Lindsey’s current research explores oppositional discourses and practices of care as they are developed and deployed from within experiences of debility and precarity.

Lindsey is a Research Assistant at Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society where she served as an Assistant Editor of Signs@40, a project that uses digital humanities tools to explore the 40-year archive of the journal. Her essay, "Our Bodies, Their Data: Tracing Biopolitical Circuitry and the Illness Experience on PatientsLikeMe.com," was recently published in Gnovis Journal, and her roundtable contributions to a special issue of Feminist Formations, titled "Institutional Feelings: Practicing Women’s Studies in the Corporate University," are forthcoming in 2015.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
