From vampires to zombies, uncanny doubles to the demonically possessed, gothic tropes have played a significant role in shaping narratives of addiction in American culture. More recently, news stories have framed the opioid crisis and its impact on homeless populations in cities like Boston and Philadelphia as a “zombie apocalypse.” Such tropes can dehumanize already stigmatized populations, yet the gothic remains a mode uniquely suited for exploring concepts of addiction and the lived experiences of individuals, families, and communities affected by the condition.

“Refusal, Disruption, and Persistence in Academia” centers on strategies such as refusal, disruption, and persistence in academia from an intersectional perspective that focusses on gendered racialization.

This roundtable will engage participants about structural change in their local context by sharing strategies from diverse standpoints. This could mean sharing stories about surviving contract work, probation, tenure review, and administrative roles while coping with and negotiating the demands of everyday life. However, participants can also consider refusal, disruption, and persistence with collaboration and community building in the foreground for systemic change, big or small.
