Bio

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.
