Vidali publishes in Journal of Medical Humanities

Amy Vidali, assistant professor of English, published "Hysterical Again: The Gastrointestinal Woman in Medical Discourse" in the Journal of Medical Humanities (34.1). This article suggests increased attention to how medical discourses of gastrointestinal (GI) disorder and distress are fraught with social assumptions and consequences by examining nineteenth-century and contemporary medical texts focused on chronic constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Her analysis of the representation of the gastrointestinal woman is shaped by disability studies scholarship, which encourages intervention in problematic medical discourses and more active shaping of discourses of chronic pain and illness by those who have these conditions.
