Securing a position as a fulltime tenure track professor is difficult but even more so for people with a disability.

Drugs and spices have long been at the center of global trade, but the concept of “drug” in its modern, Western sense is particularly derived from interactions with cultural “others.”  Thinkers such as Jacques Derrida have written on the ancient Pharmakon and its relationship to signification and sacrifice.

For women of color, the burdens are magnified.
